Raising the bar in responsible sourcing
Sedex, one of the world’s leading organisations for helping companies identify risk and manage responsible sourcing in supply chains, has opened the Sedex Annual conference for 2019. The conference will discuss and debate ways to influence positive impact in the supply chain, across labour, health and safety, business ethics and the environment.
London, UK – 5 November 2018.
The Sedex Conference is the largest responsible sourcing event in London, bringing together over 700 business leaders, CEOs, practitioners and government representatives. This year’s theme is “From outputs to outcomes – Raising the bar in responsible sourcing” and shall be hosted at The Grand Connaught Rooms in central London on Tuesday 26th & Wednesday 27th March.
Throughout the two days, we will challenge ourselves to be leaders in ethical trade – exploring key areas of supply chain sustainability to critically evaluate responsible business practices, systems and industry trends. We will demonstrate how to shift the focus from capturing data to measuring impact, with a strong focus on using data and collaboration to accelerate action in your business.
We will provide key insight into overcoming core challenges and driving change through ambitious responsible sourcing programmes – enabling you to take away practical sustainability solutions.
