3 Key Benefits of Attending:

1Reason for attending: There is a greater need for supplier collaboration to create a bigger positive change. Companies cannot act on their own, there is a need for more industry initiatives to streamline governance and create more efficiencies in the supplier auditing process.

Benefit of attending: Giving brands a chance to collaborate. We have an entire dedicated theme on what a successful supplier collaboration looks like, how to practically go about industry and NGO partnerships and the value add to your brand, reputation and efforts to create a bigger positive change. It's unchartered territory for many brands so that's why we're approaching this head on and providing companies the foundations on how partnerships can be agreed upon. Our aim is to facilitate discussions that lead to new partnerships being formed either at or post event.


2Reason for attending: Customers want to buy from a trusted brand: Brands need to have control and confidently show transparency in the sourcing of products to be seen as trusted. Customers, NGOs and investors want to know even more about where their products are being sourced - this trend is growing. Information is power here and the costs of reputational damage to a brand can be irreparable.

Benefit of attending: To mitigate reputational risk and create brand trust, you will have the latest insight from managing risk beyond the 1st tier and identify modern slavery in your supply chain services. You will gain practical and the latest ideas around how to manage this risk beyond the 1st tier of suppliers.


3Reason for attending: Sustainability teams are still struggling to effectively work with procurement to roll out responsible purchasing decisions. To create a holistic approach to embedding sustainability into the complexities of supply chains, getting this right will be key to business success.

Benefit of attending: Hear directly from commercial and procurement heads on what resonates with them when it comes to sustainability. Be inspired by brands on how to embed a sustainability mind-set and motivate purchasing teams to make responsible purchasing decisions.

Two industry-leading sustainability events. One pass.

Senior-level executives from over 60 of the most innovative responsible brands & organisations join us to push the sustainability agenda forward in London in October.
