The Finnish FTA Sustainability National Contact Group (NCG) will take place 26 September 2017 in Helsinki. FTA Sustainability NCGs are open to all FTA members, including ITP, BSCI and BEPI participants, along with companies that are interested in joining the association.

  1. Knowledge and best practice sharing: Learn and share with peers about your experience in implementing the BSCI and/or BEPI  system and engaging factories.
  2. Discuss latest updates on international trade and FTA sustainability work: get insight from the FTA secretariat about latest developments, including the Sustainability Dashboard and the new Commitment Formula.
  3. Share your input: Share your insights and needs, discuss your challenges and inform FTA about your feedback. 

During this Sustainability NCG, the new NCG Chair will be announced, members will receive a general update on FTA by Sarah Dekkiche - Membership and Business Development Manager, an update on migrant workers in Turkey by Muge Tuna - FTA Turkey Representative and insight into the new auditing process by Erika Sok - Auditing Operations Manager.
