GE Supplier Summit in Shanghai
In November 2010, GE held a Supplier Summit in Shanghai. Leaders from GE's global and business sourcing, labor, and environment, health and safety (EHS) teams came together with peer companies, suppliers, government and trade officials to share experiences. They discussed the challenges faced in securing safe and fair working conditions, as well as a better environment for workers and local communities in global supply chains.
Ann Condon, EHS Director of GE, described the Summit as "an opportunity to listen and learn, to hear good ideas, and to help us understand how better to work with suppliers to create sustainable change."
