GSCP - Improving working & environmental conditions across global supply chains
The proliferation of codes of social and environmental practice, audit duplication and divergence of approach is causing inefficiency and slowing improvement within the supply chain, as buying companies and their suppliers suffer from confusion over requirements and a lack of clarity on best practice and accountability. There is a need - and an opportunity - for cross‐industry collaboration, to bring about consistency and efficiency and drive remediation to root causes of social and environmental non-compliances through continuous improvement, training and capacity building.
The Global Social Compliance Programme (GSCP) is a business-driven programme for companies whose vision is to harmonise existing efforts to deliver a shared, consistent and global approach for the continuous improvement of working and environmental conditions across all categories and sectors. To drive convergence, the GSCP is developing a set of reference tools describing best practice and providing a common interpretation of fair labour and environmental requirements and their implementation.
This webinar will give you an overview of the Programme’s structure and objectives, the reference tools and how their use in a cross-industry collaborative setting will provide the basis for companies to tackle social and environmental non-compliances in their shared supply base. A special emphasis will be made on the programme’s work on site-specific environmental requirements and their implementation at supplier level, from the perspective of GSCP member company IKEA.
