17. How Can We Work Together to Develop the Sustainability Capacity of Our Suppliers? Shared Mentorship Program?

10:40 AM  -  12:10 PM, Thursday, May 26, 2016  |  Ballroom

Some large organizations provide training to help develop the sustainability capabilities of their small and medium enterprise (SME) suppliers, but many organizations don’t have the resources for that. Some SPLC members have asked SPLC to host a shared program that many organizations could use to support their SMEs in improving their sustainability performance. In this roundtable, SPLC staff and Board members will host a dialogue about whether SPLC should undertake that project, what format it might take, and what pre-existing work it could build upon. If this is of interest to you, come make sure your voice is heard!
