CSR Code of Conduct Course: Handling the CoC with confidence

This blended learning course equips buyers with the necessary knowledge and skills about the content of the CoC and how to handle the CoC in practice.

The CoC will rise from a simple document that buyers are unsure about to a living document that is strongly integrated in the purchasing processes.

Organizations will be able to position themselves as a leader in the human rights field while improving labor standards in their supply chains.

Benefits of the CoC-Course

For buyers:

  • More confidence in communicating the principles to suppliers

Who the CoC-Course is for

The course is designed for buyers, so that they can obtain the necessary foundations of labor and human rights.

Buyers play a central role in implementing the CoC-principles at the suppliers. Yet, if they don't feel sure about what the principle mean, how can their potential be used?

This is what this course is for.
