IF is a purpose driven business based in London. Our people have collectively worked in sustainability for decades. Our mission is to help make sustainability mainstream in business. As a platform for change, we research, create, and facilitate debate-driven, focused events and discussions tackling the critical business sustainability challenges around the world. We support this work with online publishing, analysis and in-depth research into challenges we know are essential for business innovation towards sustainability, the circular economy, improved resilience and regeneration.
This two-day business forum will assess how companies can develop and implement robust human rights policies. We’ll look in-depth into the practicalities of supply chain transformation and what this means for the future of (ethical) trade.
Through off-the-record debate, expert practitioners will discuss the biggest challenges as businesses adapt practices to comply with rapidly evolving legislation and ensure ethical, responsible and transparent supply chains.
