How this training came to life

Working for more than 9 years improving labor standards within supply chains of different companies and moderating over 50 CSR purchasing workshops, I noticed that buyers send out codes of conducts to their suppliers on a regular basis without really knowing much about the content.

Basically sending out a document that nobody really reads.

Buyers are not always trained enough to communicate principles, such as child or forced labor to suppliers and that they are often still not equipped to address labor rights or human rights violations with confidence.

This observation plus the new German Supply Chain Act, led to the creation of this training.  I am convinced that through a more conscious and equipped buying team, we can achieve small, yet powerful improvements.

I am excited to see more empowered and self-sufficient buying teams and am convinced this will have a positive impact on working conditions and the respect for human rights at the supplier level.
