Navigating Due Diligence: Protecting People And Planet Throughout Your Supply Chain
Supply chain due diligence is the systematic process of assessing, preventing and mitigating risks in your supply chain, especially to workers and the planet. It is essential to transparency, sustainability and risk management.
Basically, it means that companies are responsible for the impact of their entire supply, not just tier 1.
Several state, US and EU governments have implemented - or are planning - laws with various approaches to enforcement and penalties. They include mandates for traceability, analysis, prevention, record keeping, reporting, mitigation and grievance processes.
No matter what part of the supply chain you occupy, these laws will affect you.
Join us for a webinar to answer:
- What is due diligence and why should we care?
- What due diligence frameworks and guidelines exist?
- What US and EU laws are in place and on the horizon?
- How am I supposed to prevent and mitigate risk in all tiers of my supply chain?
- Where do I start?
