Retailers and brands are moving towards capacity building models as a complement to auditing in order to achieve sustained improvements in environmental and workers' social conditions. Given the wide variety of companies with different levels of resources and business models, such a model change is difficult in terms of scalability to reach beyond a core niche of facilities in the supply chain.
This panel will look to gain perspectives on what can be pursued based on company size and internal commitments as well as better understand the scalability of existing capacity building models available now on the market.
Participating panel organizations currently include Disney, ILO Better Works Program and Intertek with Doug Cahn moderating.
