Joint Event: Responsible Global Sourcing - A Collaborative Approach to Achieve the SDGs



On 23 November 2018, amfori will partner with the Japan Business Council in Europe, Business Policy Forum, Japan, the Council for Better Corporate Citizenship, CSR Europe and the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation to hold the 3rd EU-Japan CSR Business Dialogue Meeting.

Globalisation has transformed the way in which supply chains operate. With the support of technological developments, together with a rise in regional trade agreements, companies source products from all parts of the world. While providing extensive trading possibilities, companies also have the potential, and the obligation, to contribute to global sustainability. The question is how to better engage and support businesses in their sustainability efforts towards achieving the SDGs?

The EU-Japan CSR Business Dialogue  enables companies to discuss challenges, share best practice and explore opportunities for business collaboration and leadership. 
Join us to:
  • Identify key issues affecting industry and broader society with the EU and Japanese authorities, with the aim of shaping future public policy
  • Examine global supply chain sustainability challenges and potential solutions for companies; including how to translate SDGs into supply chain management
  • Forge potential new partnerships and alliances with key business and stakeholders

This day will bring together business organisations and company representatives working in procurement, sustainability, advocacy and strategic issues.
