Learnings from the Common Framework for Responsible Purchasing Practices (CFRPP), the STTI White Paper and a community-based approach.
Brands are increasingly turning their attention to their purchasing practices, however, progress towards responsible purchasing practices (RPP) across the sector is being slowed due to a number of repeatedly reported barriers.
Our panel will focus on how brands can revise their purchasing practices and the importance of the supplier voice in making these changes. Besides that, our expert speaker will present the necessary steps when embarking on this mission, especially with regards to companies’ HRDD process, and will provide practical examples that can be built on. We will also demonstrate how to overcome the barriers that brands are facing, such as obtaining company-wide buy-in as well as supplier feedback and its involvement in improving a brand’s purchasing practices. We will highlight good practices in tackling these barriers based on our learnings within the Learning and Implementation Community (LIC)*.
* The LIC is a collaboration between Fair Wear, ETI, Ethical Trade Norway, the PST and Solidaridad (as a negotiating party to the Dutch Next Generation Agreement), with the support of the STTI.
