Companies face an expanding range of social, human rights and environmental risks in their operations and supply chains that simply complying with the law does not fully address. 
There are now hundreds of ‘soft law’ corporate responsibility codes applicable to business issues and specific industries. Lawyers can mine these to craft advice on clients’ operational and reputational risks. That they are ‘voluntary’ is not decisive: Can they assist risk management? Can they be safely ignored? Can they help design control- or counter-measures to prevent problems or shorten recovery processes?
This 90 minute webinar will focus on using international standards to address:
1. Supply chain vulnerabilities – purchaser and supplier perspectives
2. Issue management through disclosure and reporting – required, voluntary, or ‘comply or explain’
The webinar will review illustrative cases, issue-management strategies and legal work products based on respected international standards, including the recent ABA Model Business and Supplier Policies on Labor Trafficking and Child Labor, and emergent supply chain compliance programs for critical minerals from conflict zones.
