ELEVATE Webinar: Reducing Forced Labor Risks in Supply Chains Through Data-Driven Traceability Approaches

  • March 11, 2021
  • 11 am HKT / 10 am EDT / 3pm BST

For most companies, sustainability and compliance efforts focus primarily on Tier 1 suppliers, the manufacturers that produce final products. Insufficient attention has been paid to suppliers in Tier 2 or beyond due to a range of factors – including lack of visibility along the supply chain and the challenges in achieving full transparency and traceability. Without traceability and transparency, companies are at risk of complicity in potential negative impacts in their supply chains, including forced labor practices and unauthorized subcontracting.

Increasing regulation and pressure from investors and customers are leading companies to take a proactive approach to achieve supply chain traceability. Using a data-driven approach to traceability and due diligence, companies can identify potential negative impacts and forced labor risks – and take action to prevent and address them.

Join Sung In, Associate Director Worker Engagement, Jessie Fisher, Associate Director Sustainability Consulting and Filippo Sebastio, Senior Analyst, in a discussion on how data-driven supply chain tracing efforts can be scaled and replicated to support the elimination of forced labor and human trafficking and reduce risks to business.

In this webinar we will discuss the following questions:

  • What are the key challenges in achieving supply chain traceability?
  • How can poor supply chain visibility exacerbate forced labor risks?
  • What tools and approaches can companies use to reduce risks and achieve traceability?

Times:

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