Responsible Sourcing through a Human Rights lens

On 22 June 2015 in Minneapolis (US) AIM-PROGRESS and Twentyfifty organised its second training course focusing on human rights in global supply chains.  The workshop enabled participants to learn about the implications of the United Nations Guiding Principles (UNGPs) for Business and what it specifically means for responsible sourcing; identify the key elements of a human rights program for the supply chain of their company (including policies, codes, impacts, due diligence, remediaton, grievance mechanisms); and articulate the main elements of a business case to colleagues. In addition, it helped to generate ideas for future AIM-PROGRESS deliverables which will focus on further developing member capabilities to integrate human rights in their supply chains.
