Whether you are new to IMPA ACT or considering to join the initiative, we have organised a two-day workshop for you in London on 13-14 December 2021, from 09:00 to 15:00 on the first day and 13:00 to 16:00 on the second day. The training, created and delivered by Sune Skadegaard Thorsen, will teach participants all about setting up a responsible supply chain management system that is aligned to internationally-endorsed UN standards.
During the two days of training, we will cover the following:
- What are the minimum requirements to Responsible Business Conduct (RBC)? Understanding the UN Guiding Principles and the OECD Guidelines on which IMPA ACT has based its Supplier Code of Conduct.
- How does the minimum standard for RBC relate to the wider field of CSR or CR or Corporate Sustainability, including the SDGs and the UN Global Compact?
- What are the requirements to your company's commitment? The key elements of a Policy Commitment.
- What is social, environmental and economic due diligence? How to document it.
- What to do in your company on a Monday? Starting up the due diligence work for the company.
- How do you manage your responsibility in business relationships, including suppliers?
Upon completion of the course, all participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance, confirming they have learned about the importance and mechanisms of aligning their company's practice with internationally-endorsed standards for business and human rights.
