by GIZ FABRIC created 2023-02-23T14:56:21+07:00
Buyer-supplier collaboration on due diligence implementation based on distribution of costs and responsibilities along the supply chain can help support the development of effective due diligence processes and a more equal distribution of the burden of compliance. Within the context of increasing due diligence legislation, and the risk of unduly cascading RBC expectations to upstream parts of the supply chain, the panel reflects on the benefits and limitations of buyer-supplier collaboration models and highlights current industry examples of successful approaches to shared implementation of due diligence. Speakers: Sarah Dadush, Rutgers Law school; Xiaohui Liang, China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC); Michael Bride, PVH; Anant Ahuja, Shahi Exports; Moderator: Joris Oldenziel
