Event: Supply Chain Management Beyond Tier One
13 September

The UN Global Compact Local Networks Germany, UK, France, Spain, Italy and Switzerland have joined forces to organise the third meeting of the European Business and Human Rights Peer Learning Group, taking place on 13 September in Madrid, Spain. The meeting represents a great opportunity for companies from different European countries to meet and discuss common challenges they face in addressing human rights issues in their supply chains.

Titled “Responsible sourcing through a human rights lens – going beyond tier 1”, this year’s meeting aims to build capacity in managing supply chains beyond tier 1. Particularly, the focus will be on the following three pillars:

  1. Reducing complexity: prioritising product groups and sourcing categories.
  2. Identifying the appropriate approach: defining ambition levels and choosing appropriate tools for various product groups, sourcing categories and tiers.
  3. Embedding: integrating expectations and ambitions internally and engaging the supplier base across various tiers.

The meeting will include inputs, case study presentations by participants and external speakers as well as interactive group work.

There are only a few places left for joining this meeting. For more information or to request and invitation, please email the Secretariat.
