OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector
Rome, 18 February 2022
Representatives of governments, businesses, trade unions and civil society will discuss the progress made in implementing the OECD Guidelines and key developments in the sector, some of which relate to the very essence of supply chain structures and the ability of different actors to adopt risk-based due diligence in their day to day activities. A series of panel sessions will explore business models and policy initiatives from which the best RBC practices can be derived (purchasing practices, supply chain dialogue structures, living wages, mitigation measures, adaptation to climate risk, mandatory due diligence, public procurement).
The Forum will take place in virtual mode .
