Director Social Sustainability & SSCI, The Consumer Goods Forum
Didier Bergeret is Director of Social Sustainability and the Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative (SSCI). The main focus of his work is to develop collaborative and practical solutions for the industry to advance responsible supply chains. He notably supports the implementation of the first industry resolution to fight forced labour in global supply chains launched by the CEOs of the Board of the Consumer Goods Forum. This resolution is supported by Priority Industry Principles stating that Every worker should have freedom of movement; No worker should pay for a job; No worker should be indebted or coerced to work. Didier engages stakeholders, institutions and governments with the industry to coordinate efforts on such issues and to drive positive change for companies’ own operations and supply chains.
With professional experience in both private and public organisations, Didier’s expertise lies in building key partnerships to foster sustainable business performance, NGO management, procurement and consulting services for private and public actors. From an educational background in Political Science and International Economics in France, Germany, Spain and the UK, his international experience and language skills serve him well in his daily work.
