What is the objective of this conference?
The conference is designed to provide business delegates with the practical tools to protect human rights and mitigate the risk of abuses in corporate supply chains.
What makes this conference different?
Focused content designed for action and practice – the focus of the agenda and event structure are designed to provide actionable tools and practical insights that you can then apply to your own company.More time for genuine discussion – the agenda and timings have been built to provide time for in-depth debate and meaningful exchange beyond introductions and superficial outlines of initiatives. There will be a lot of experience in the room and therefore we intend for the discussions to be participatory.Held under the Chatham House rule – this event is not intended as a PR platform – we hold the event under a covenant of confidentiality to promote honest exchange.
The 2018 conference will have 150+ delegates representing corporates, NGOs, suppliers, traders, development agencies, investors, government bodies and other relevant organisations.
