The objective of the one hour complimentary webinar (45-min presentation / 15-min Q&A) is to provide an overview of the benefits that organizations are realizing from implementing social accountability programs in their supply chain and for their facilities. By doing this, it supports organizations who want to develop their social auditing programs or who want to consider how to begin them.

Issues in the supply chain have been in the media during 2012 – 2013 and we take this point to review how organizations are approaching and implementing social improvements in their supply chain. A great deal of risk, reputational risk and benefit will be unlocked by developing a robust approach to understanding the workplace, environmental and integrity issues in the supply chain.
