Helping companies to develop and implement responsible sourcing commitments

The responsible sourcing course aims to provide practical guidance for the development and implementation of responsible sourcing policies.

The course is divided into an online module and a one-day workshop:

  • The online module consists of approximately 3.5 hours of self-learning and participants can complete it at their own pace. This module focuses on understanding of the current situation and the development of responsible sourcing policies.
  • The workshop focuses on implementation of responsible sourcing policy. Topics include supply chain mapping, risk assessment, verification and monitoring of suppliers and communication policy.
