response to the series of incidents at the supplier factories in Bangladesh,
retailers and brands are strengthening their CSR & Social Responsibility
approaches and programs to avoid potential risks in the future. Collaborative
initiatives like the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh and
Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety have resulted in a number of inspections,
identified issues and suggested corrective action plans.
An increasing number of brands and retailers are still maintaining their own
audits and inspections and have also started publishing the results to
consumers. With possible human trafficking regulations, organizations are now
gearing up to further enhance visibility in their supply chain and implement
new programs to ensure better social performance.

This webinar will focus on re-examining approaches to CSR & Social
Responsibility programs in the supply chain, including:
challenges and increasing risks in the supply chain
social compliance to social performance programs
effectiveness of audit programs and reducing administrative effort
technology to improve performance of social compliance programs
