Network Connects in New Countries

11-12-2019

amfori hosted a series of Network Connects in Austria, Belgium, Finland, and Norway. Check out the highlights and positive testimonies from our members: 

”At the last Network Connect of the year we had the great opportunity to hear Sonja Finér, Executive Director of Finnwatch. She was presenting the latest publication of Finnwatch called Supply chains black as coal. The report describes the significance of greenhouse gas emissions from imported products as well as the purchaser companies’ capacity to manage their products’ carbon footprint. Study was conducted in relation to amfori BEPI which made it particularly interesting for members.” stated Marja Aho, Chair for Finnish network.

"We were very happy to host the first Belgian amfori network event and thought it was a good start of a closer collaboration between the Belgian members in tackling common challenges. We are looking forward to a follow-up so that we can continue sharing each other’s experiences and draw inspiration from each other." Kirsten Ceulaers, Manager Sustainable Sourcing at Colruyt Group.

‘’Christian Ewert and Lorenz Berzau created a conversational atmosphere that made it possible to openly discuss difficulties amfori members face in improving the social and environmental standards all around the world.” said Sabine Silbernagl, from Austrian member, G2TRADE Handels GmbH.
