Modern Slavery, COVID-19 and supply chain visibility (VIRTUAL)

Are sustainable procurement and economic recovery mutually exclusive or interdependent strategies?

For all the promise of "Procurement on Purpose" in recent years, Social and Indigenous Procurement policies and frameworks, ISO20400 Guidelines for Sustainable Procurement and the Modern Slavery Act, the demands being made of many procurement professionals today, are somewhat less inspiring. As Australia enters its first recession in almost three decades and our business and political leaders put economic recovery at the top of every agenda, does Procurement still have a mandate for anything other than cost savings?

This round table session will use the business case for supply chain visibility to help participants reconcile the demands of Modern Slavery Act (MSA) compliance and re-engineering supply chains in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. A short presentation will update everyone on the recent MSA compliance extension and current approaches, then address both strategic and tactical responses… all set into the context of participant’s issues.
