Supply chain risk management is an important part of the compliance strategy for every fashion brand and retailer. But today’s media attention to the threat of forced labor in those supply chains means it is time to take a fresh look at your due diligence and compliance efforts. Join USFIA and Social Compliance & Sustainability Partner BSI for a webinar to discuss these many supply chain risks to fashion brands and retailers, with a special focus on the role of international organizations, governments, and NGOs on modern-day slavery, forced labor, and how to mitigate these risks. Fred Waelter, Principal Consultant, Sustainable Supply Chains of BSI will cover:
- When did the media begin to focus on forced labor in supply chains?
- Which bodies are focusing on regulation in this area, and what do newly-promulgated laws dictate?
- What is the connection between social compliance and supply chain security (CTPAT) for U.S. brands and retailers?
- Risk country focus: Taiwan – Perfect storm of interaction between economic policy, international relations, legislative requirements, and the structure of existing labor supply chains
This webinar will be recorded and distributed to everyone who registers.
