Supply chain conference

 Sustainable value chains - Success factors for an internationally accepted binding standard

As part of Germany’s G7 Presidency, the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs will host a digital conference on sustainable value chains on 6 May 2022. The aim is to give new impulses to the international debate on a binding standard in the field of business and human rights. The conference will feature discussions with high-level representatives of the G7 countries, international organisations, trade unions and employers, civil society, as well as renowned experts. What would be the added value of an international binding standard or instrument on business and human rights? What are crucial success criteria for broad acceptance? What can the G7 contribute?

In cooperation with the ILO initiative Alliance 8.7, the conference will also deal with two of the most severe human rights violations in business operation and value chains that require urgent action: child labour and forced labour.
