2017 Thought Leadership Webinar Series Kick Off


The Thought Leadership Webinars are a series of webinars that feature prominent experts in the field who provide participants with updates on relevant trade and supply chain management matters in order to mitigate risks throughout their global value chain.

This year’s series kicked off in early May, with a webinar ‘Assessing the Landscape of Due Diligence Legislation Across Europe’. Experts presented an overview of the different legislations impacting companies, from child labour due diligence law in the Netherlands to French Law on Duty of Care.

Later in the month, FTA hosted a webinar on the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) that provided information on its key requirements and risks in the timber industry from a trade, environmental and social perspective. Speakers highlighted the scope of products covered by the EUTR, and endorsed FTA’s recommendation to members to have an effective due diligence system in place to identify and address potential risks.

Stay tuned for more webinars to come!
