What are your options with dealing with fire safety in your supply chain?

Is it Auditing? Root cause analysis? Worker/ community engagement? Can we do all three effectively?

Fire safety continues to be an important topic that is quite high on everyone’s radar right now.  As a result, the Ethical Sourcing Forum team is enhancing the interactive workshop session to give you direct access to pointed conversations on options that may work best for your organization.

So roll-up your sleeves alongside your colleagues in a deep-dive learning session.

Featured Topic

The Tipping Point: The Tazreen Tragedy

What can you do?

The attendees at ESF all come from different places with varying company resources and capabilities.  Yet, we are all somehow dealing with the recent fire tragedies that have permanently changed the game be it sourcing directly in vulnerable countries, new global requirements posed by your own customers or pressure from other stakeholders to address the problem.  What should your practical action plan be to this sometimes overwhelming issue?  This interactive workshop will build upon the foundations presented in the main plenary session on Factory Fires to allow participants to discuss in small groups real examples of possible solutions to figure out what may work best for your individual company or situation.

Workshop Moderator:  Greg Gardner, President and CEO, Arche Advisors
