Compliance with social and environmental standards is a key business and sustainability driver, especially across supplier factories where licensed goods are manufactured. However, despite the existence of stringent laws, many instances of sub-standard working conditions in manufacturing facilities, labor and human rights violations, occupational health and safety, environmental compliance, and business integrity issues continue to dominate the news headlines, negatively impacting brand and reputation.

Licensors expect licensees to implement social and environmental compliance programs that monitor working conditions in manufacturing facilities, enable compliance with all applicable and relevant regulations and standards including the licensors’ social and environmental compliance requirements, and ensure compliance with these requirements across supply chain facilities. During this webinar, Laura Gitman, Managing Director of Advisory Services at BSR, will join Sonal Sinha, Associate Vice President of Industry Solutions at MetricStream to discuss best practices for licensors and licensees in effectively managing social and environmental compliance programs across supply chain facilities.

Some of the key points that will be discussed include:

  • Managing and meeting the expectations of licensors and licensees
  • Integrating social and environmental compliance into business relationships with suppliers
  • Identifying and understanding social and environmental compliance risks
  • Auditing and monitoring social and environmental compliance in supply chains
  • Remediating and improving working conditions in manufacturing facilities
