There has been an increasing number of allegations and incidents of social non-compliance at factories of some of the major brands, retailers, and manufacturers across the globe. The key social and ethical issues that have been reported relate to human rights and labor standards, health and safety, environmental management, and business integrity practices. This has compelled organizations to re-evaluate their social compliance programs and employ best practices that will enable them to meet their corporate responsibility goals, foster a culture of responsibility and accountability across their supply chain networks, and develop socially responsible relationships with their supply chain partners.

To address the various challenges relating to social compliance and equip organizations with best practices in responsible sourcing, supply chain and risk management experts Mark Jones, Chief Marketing and Product Officer of INFACT Partners, and Keri Dawson, Vice President of ComplianceOnline Advisory Services, MetricStream, will lead a discussion on ‘Responsible Sourcing: Moving from Social Compliance to Performance’.

Drawing from their vast global experience in managing supply chain and regulatory risks, Mr. Jones and Ms. Dawson will share their perspectives and provide valuable insights on the emerging trends, the effects and how technology can be leveraged to bring in social performance. Some of the key discussion points include:

  • Enhancing social performance through social compliance
  • Gaining visibility and insight into emerging risks in real-time
  • Crowd sourcing and the value organizations can derive from it
