Microphone Scaling factory impacts through partnerships and collaboration

Across the apparel, FMCG, electronics, home furnishings and other consumer goods sectors, how factories can develop to secure supply and be more sustainable is a crucial business risk issue

In this Innovation Forum webinar, hear an expert panel outline some effective and current collaboration initiatives that are helping to create alignment between companies and their partners working on factory improvements in emerging markets.

Senior practitioners from Better Work, Fair Factories Clearinghouse, EICC and Social and Labour Convergence debate the visions and goals that are essential for these partnerships, how they are working towards them, the lessons that can be applied across sectors and the future role of companies in making the process work.

  • Tara Rangarajan, global operations manager, Better Work, an ILO-IFC initiative
  • Kathryn Lunardelli, director of impact and engagement, Fair Factories Clearing House
  • Janet Mensink, from the Sustainable Apparel Coalition and project director, Social and Labor Convergence
  • Carlos Busquets, director of public policy, Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition

Introduced and moderated by Ian Welsh, publishing director, Innovation Forum.
