The demand for transparency in the supply chain continues to grow in 2013. Recent tragedies such as the Bangladesh factory collapse have highlighted the serious risks that labour conditions can pose not only to workers, but also to organisations’ reputations, supply chains and financial performance. Customers, investors and regulators are no longer just interested in a company’s operational performance, but also in how they manage their supply chain.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has responded, including increased supply chain disclosures in its new G4 Guidelines, and the Dow Jones Sustainability Index has added a section on supply chain management. How are organisations responding to these new expectations? Hear from leading companies on how they plan to report on their management efforts and supply chain improvements.
The breakfast sessions will include an introduction to the new supply chain disclosures under GRI G4 by Net Balance Director Dr Robyn Leeson, a member of the GRI Stakeholder Council and Technical Advisory Committee, followed by a panel discussion with the speakers below:
