Responsible Sourcing – Moving from Social Compliance to Performance

Start: August 9, 2012 11:00 am

In the last couple of months, there have been many high profile exposure of ethical and social compliance related issues such as working hours and working conditions, child labor, wages and benefits, environmental conditions at factories of major global brands, retailers, consumer electronics companies and manufacturers.

The response of these organizations was very comprehensive and included publishing vendor code of conduct, results of the Fair Labor Association (FLA) review and worker surveys, making public their factory list in addition to monthly reporting on working hours, audit findings and corrective actions. Many brands and retailers have taken notice and so have institutional investors. There are a number of important implications for publicly traded companies.

Join this webinar where Mark Jones, Chief Marketing and Product Officer of INFACT Partners and Keri Dawson, Vice President of ComplianceOnline Advisory Services, MetricStream will talk about the new trends, implications and the importance of technology to improve effectiveness.

Key discussion points are:

  • Moving from social compliance to social performance
  • Improving visibility and insight into emerging risks
  • Anticipating and preparing for the new tidal wave of information
