Panel Discussion

Shared responsibility for human rights and global value chains

Event:
16 March 2016

G7, OECD, SDGs have all put great emphasis on the need to foster sustainable supply chains. At a time when the European Commission (2016-19) is about to renew its CSR strategy, CSR Europe, in close collaboration with the European Parliament and Commission, will host an event to:

  • Discuss how companies embed human rights into their functions as an on-going process which must always favour continuous improvement over box-ticking
  • Explore how sector platforms support more companies to share and build coherent processes and capacities
  • How policy makers at national, European and international level can engage closer the business community to support wider impact and accelerate progress

The purpose of this open forum is clear: how can we define a new chapter for business-EU collaboration to ensure better compliance and increased innovation for real impact? The status quo is not an option, closer collaboration is vital if we want Europe to continue playing a leadership role on human rights in sustainable supply chains at local and global level.
