Break-out session A: Doing due diligence: What lessons can be learned? How to integrate measures in business strategies?

Whether you are a CEO, a buyer, corporate lawyer, sustainability manager or local supplier, you all have a role to play in combatting child labour in global supply chains. But what does it mean for a company to integrate the prevention and elimination of child labour into its business processes? Which practical steps can a company take? Several speakers from various organisations will share their experiences, dilemma’s and challenges they faced and the solutions they came up with.

The aim of this breakout session is to find best practices and innovative solutions to integrate the prevention and elimination of child labour in a company’s due diligence process. But of course we are also interested in hearing about your ideas, questions, and inspirational examples!

Please join our session to share your experiences and together with us learn how to take the next steps!
