Buying with People in Mind: Procurement that Protects Workers

Charles Frost

This session will explore how to best combine site and company-level sustainability considerations such as fair labor practices and protecting human rights with product-level sustainability considerations; and how standards are increasingly covering both. Knowing what to ask suppliers regarding how they are addressing negative labor and human rights impacts and what constitutes credible supporting documentation from a supplier is a challenge for both public and private sector purchasers.
This session will be moderated by Eryn Schornick, Policy Advisor, Global Witness.
