Vision to Values: Transparency in Your Supply Chain

Sponsored by Baker McKenzie

Transparency does more than manage the fiscal, legal and reputational risks that stem from doing business in a global community. It engages the trust and confidence of your councils, boards, shareholders and stakeholders that you proactively design systems to identify ethical and compliance problems before they become targets requiring remedial action. Transparency drives the choices you make for your suppliers and influences the choices your customers and consumers make when selecting you.

Our panelists discuss how to create systems to ensure compliance with international labour and human rights laws, environmental and anti-corruption regulations and also instill good corporate governance and ethical practices such as board compensation and board composition matters.
