IPIECA held a supply chain workshop from 16-17 July 2013 in Paris, France that assessed and identified the commonalities between members around human and labour rights issues and environmental expectations. Attendees shared existing practices and processes for managing supply chain risks within their companies. The workshop incorporated input from other sectors including electronics, fashion and a cross-industry suppliers’ platform in order to share experiences on how these industries manage and reduce social and environmental supply chain risks, and attendees identified how these learnings could be incorporated into company practices moving forward.
As well as the external industry representations, attendees incorporated a range of functions across IPIECA members including supply chain, procurement, sustainability and corporate responsibility, and the workshop ultimately identified a number of future activities for IPIECA in this area. Please visit the event webpage for more details on the workshop, including presentations and the full agenda.
