Find out the latest in responsible supply chain management and learn to build your company's CSR system during an interactive two-day workshop. Perfect for the responsible procurement professional wishing to gain better visibility into the value chain, this course will teach participants to align internal processes with global principles for sustainable development by using internationally-endorsed frameworks.

During the two days, you will learn to answer the following questions:


  1. What are the minimum requirements to Responsible Business Conduct (RBC)? Understanding the UN Guiding Principles and the OECD Guidelines on which IMPA ACT has based its Supplier Code of Conduct.

  2. How does the minimum standard for RBC relate to the wider field of CSR or CR or Corporate Sustainability, including the SDGs and the UN Global Compact?

  3. What are the requirements to your company’s commitment? The key elements of a Policy Commitment.

  4. What is social, environmental and economic due diligence? How to document it.

  5. What to do in your company on a Monday? Starting up the due diligence work for the company.

  6. How do you manage your responsibility in business relationships, including suppliers?


The course will be delivered by long-standing IMPA ACT partner and original architect Sune Skadegaard Thorsen, also the CEO and Founder of Copenhagen-based Danish consultancy Global CSR.


It is highly encouraged that companies wishing to participate send at least two representatives. Upon completion of the course, all participants will receive a digital Certificate of Attendance within 7 working days, confirming they have learned about the importance and mechanisms of aligning their company's practice with internationally-endorsed standards for business and human rights.
