OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment & Footwear Sector

February 23, 2022 - February 24, 2022

Virtual format, registration and agenda here

The theme of the 2022 Forum is Rethinking The Business Model For Responsible Supply Chains. Discussions will consider key developments in the sector, some affecting the very essence of supply chain structures and the capacity of different actors to adopt risk-based due diligence in their day to day activities. A series of panel sessions will explore which type of business models and broader policy initiatives deliver better practice on RBC, across topics from purchasing practices to supply chain dialogue structures, from living wages to climate risk mitigation and adaptation, and from mandatory due diligence to public procurement. Together, participants will focus on opportunities and next steps for scaling those initiatives that demonstrate impact.

The Forum brings together representatives of government, business, trade unions and civil society to review progress on the implementation of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector to address emerging risks and to share learnings on implementing due diligence across geographies in a neutral environment.

Registration for the 2022 Forum is now open. The Forum will take place virtually. On-site access to some of the Forum’s sessions may be considered and will be confirmed in the lead up to the event.
