Sustainable Procurement: How to Integrate Modern Slavery Risk into Your Procurement Process
Date & Time: 22 September 2020, 8.30 - 16:00 BST
Companies all over the world - and particularly in the developed economies such as the UK are being challenged to address their environmental and human rights impacts. Legislation governing human rights impact is growing and supply chains are becoming increasingly complex and open to ever-more scrutiny.
This interactive workshop will bring participants rapidly up to speed on sustainable procurement, including the key legal compliance and supply chain risks involving environmental and human rights and modern slavery; the moral and business imperatives for managing human rights risk, including in the supply chain, the benefits that can be gained, and the challenges and dilemmas these issues pose.
Drawing from relevant legislation, standards such as ISO 24000, guidance, and the practical experience of working with companies on these issues, the full-day workshop will examine what it takes to develop and implement an effective sustainable procurement strategy and policy in practice, and how to ensure that the application of these processes are meaningful and beneficial to your company.
