The Responsible Sourcing Conference 2017 will bring together business leaders in responsible sourcing for a full day of discussion, insight, networking and practical advice – all with the aim of demystifying social, environmental and ethical challenges.

KPMG in conjunction with Sedex, the leading non-profit organisation dedicated to improving global supply chains, will be hosting Australia’s first responsible sourcing conference of its kind.

From environmental impacts, to corruption, to labour practices; when working on managing supply chain risks many responsible sourcing issues and challenges are closely interconnected. Treating these issues in silos can miss the root of the problem or overcomplicate the solution.

What this conferences offers is fresh perspectives on managing responsible sourcing. Sedex is already doing this, collaborating with organisations across the board to simplify and demystify sustainable supply chain management.

The Responsible Sourcing Conference 2017 will bring together senior managers and practitioners with responsible sourcing responsibilities to consider and explore how responsible sourcing can be made practical and simple. The conference offers a wide range of contributors from at all levels of the supply chain, government, the third sector and more.

The conference will offer insight and practical advice to delegates in the form of:

  • Plenary sessions – hear from key players in the field with high-level and cross-sector overviews.
  • Workshops – themed to address a range of maturity and interests. For example, find out more about Sedex and how to get the most out of your membership with Sedex Advance.
  • Networking – networking opportunities that allow you make new contacts and deepen existing relationships. 

 

Why attend?

  • Hear from high-profile, world class speakers
  • Receive practical advice from leaders in the field
  • Network with peers from across the globe
  • Gain fresh perspectives on industry issues and trends
  • Share your knowledge in interactive workshops
