COURSE DESCRIPTION You get to know the fundamentals of implementing Human Rights within supply chains. We look at real-world cases to conduct a thorough baseline analysis and use a systems approach to evaluate the risks involved along the supply chain. We also identify action points for risk minimisation and ways to integrate Human Rights principles within the innovation process. This prepares you for the legislation to eliminate Human Rights violations. In this course we especially refer to the German Supply Chain Act (Lieferkettengesetz) which holds businesses accountable for Human Rights compliance in the supply chain.
