The Indo-German Chamber of Commerce (IGCC), in collaboration with the Food Security Standard (FSS) by Welthungerhilfe and Meo Carbon Solutions, invites you to join our upcoming webinar on the effective integration of human rights and environmental indicators into existing sustainability certification schemes for food and cotton products.

Consumer demand for ethical products is stronger than ever, and businesses are under increasing pressure to ensure their supply chains meet social and environmental standards.

Integrating social indicators like fair wages, safe working conditions, land and water rights, gender equality, and social safety in business practices, especially at the production level of agricultural goods can boost a company’s sustainability credentials. However, implementing this integration can be complex and costly, especially for smaller producers.

Join us for the webinar to gain valuable insights into streamlining this process.

The webinar will cover:

✔ The importance of addressing human rights concerns for businesses,
✔ Challenges and strategies for addressing social and environmental aspects at the production level,
✔ Identifying and mitigating social risks in agricultural supply chains,
✔ Ensuring compliance with mandatory due diligence regulations, such as the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act.

Featuring insights from:

➞ Isabel Britsch – Senior Consultant, IGCC SustainMarkets and Business Scout for Development
➞ Laura Mack – Senior Policy Advisor, Welthungerhilfe
➞ Max Jürgens – Attorney at law, Graf von Westphalen
➞ Kyu hee Do – Project Manager for Supply Chain Due Diligence, Meo Carbon Solutions

Don't miss this opportunity to learn from industry leaders and enhance your company's sustainability credentials.
