Please join us for an afternoon discussion on how emerging sustainability trends in the supply chain are affecting the automotive industry—among others. The event will feature an interactive dialogue with BSR issue experts and industry peers highlighting best practices and opportunities for action, followed by an informal reception to continue the conversation.

During this event, we will discuss:

  • Commodities of concern: From conflict minerals and leather to electronics and beyond, what are significant sustainability issues in the commodities and components used in automotive and other industrial supply chains?
  • Human rights and working conditions: How do new global standards on business and human rights apply to company supply chains, and how can companies engage effectively?
  • Climate resilience: What role is climate change, as well as potential regulatory responses, likely to play in global supply chains, and how can companies prepare?
