Risk & Responsibility: The evolution of supply chain data and business culture

Details :
Since the inception of APRES (Action Programme for Responsible and Ethical Sourcing), we have seen a significantly increased awareness of the importance of responsible and ethical sourcing to minimise the impacts that the construction industry supply chain has on resources, the environment and people around the world.

Clients and stakeholders increasingly expect ethical and transparent sourcing of products and labour for construction projects, while the UK government has sought to strengthen policy, regulation and guidelines through policy instruments such as the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Industry therefore has more awareness, codes of practice and tools than ever before; but how can we best improve the implementation of responsible and ethical sourcing consistently across all professions and what are the gaps in both policy and research needed to embed it into the mainstream?

Aimed primarily at clients, developers, architects, construction, sustainability and procurement professionals, contractors, suppliers and manufacturers, the 7th APRES conference will provide a strategic overview of responsible and ethical resourcing, details of the latest tools and guidelines as well as insights into the latest research. This highly interactive conference will seek to gain practical insights from delegates into the opportunities and barriers for increased responsible and ethical sourcing.
