Webinar – A data-driven approach to sustainability due diligence: a discussion with Migros

  • September 24, 2020
  • 11:00 am HKT

Global value chains often have negative impacts on the environment and human rights as a result of their operations and supply chains. Increasing regulations and pressure from investors and customers are leading companies to take a proactive approach to incorporate sustainability due diligence into their processes. Using a data-driven approach to due diligence, companies can identify potential negative impacts and risks and take action to prevent and address them, especially as COVID-19 has affected traditional monitoring activities.

Come join ELEVATE’s Martin Stäheli and Nikolaj Fischer for a conversation with Migros’s Marius Lang, Head of Social Standards. They will explore how Migros, Switzerland’s largest retailer and supermarket chain, uses a data-driven approach to support its due diligence. During this webinar, they will discuss:

  • How Migros assesses its global supply chain risks as part of its due diligence
  • The major challenges companies must overcome to conduct thorough supply chain due diligence
  • How a data-driven approach supports the OECD Guidance on Due Diligence and UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights frameworks

Times:

  • Americas / Europe: 10:00 am EDT / 3:00 pm BST
  • Asia: 11:00 am HKT
