Conference theme

The theme of the 2017 conference is ‘Annual audits or collaboration for continuous improvement?’ We will ask how buying companies can work with their suppliers to achieve continuous improvement in standards over time, rather than simply audit and address non-compliances on an annual basis. The Sedex China Conference 2017 will delve into key areas of responsible sourcing to uncover what this ongoing development looks like and how both suppliers and buyers can take action in their businesses and supply chains.

The conference is designed primarily for Sedex members or prospective members but also attracts a wider audience outside of our membership. It brings together a range of stakeholders including some of the world’s largest retailers and FMCG brands, manufacturers, producers, media and NGOs. Now well established on the conference circuit, the conference will welcome around 300 sustainability professionals.
