Submitted by: David Connor

Series: Supply Chain Sustainability: Special Focus

Tags: supply chain, sustainability, anti-corruption, human rights


Today we are calling for audience submitted articles to push on ‘Supply Chain Sustainability’ for our next Talkback Series beginning in early February.

We invite leaders of today and tomorrow to submit 500 words or more to share challenges, learning, opinion and stories of success with our wide community of professionals, academics, NGOs and consumers.

What do you think the material human rights, labour, environmental, anti-corruption and supply chain issues are for 2015?

Suggested topic areas you may want to consider:

  • Industry collaboration and multi-stakeholder partnerships
  • Standards and certification – International Labour Standards, Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), and Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), SA800 and ISO14001 etc.
  • Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 guidelines on supply chains
  • Beyond direct supplier relationships
  • Smaller business sustainability / CSR
  • Communicating performance


If you can write 500 words or more that adds tangible momentum to a knowledgeable audience, then get that laptop fired up. We don't guarantee publication on Talkback, as all submissions are subject to editorial discretion, but if your article doesn't make it there is a good chance it could be published on one of our other platforms over at CSRlive channelJustmeans or Social Earth for the world to see.
