OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

Parallel session: The role of retailers in building responsible supply chains

Feb 21, 2024 | 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Room CC9


Retailers hold a powerful but rarely discussed position in advancing due diligence uptake among the thousands of brands they promote on their online marketplaces and in their department stores. The session will explore how retailers are conducting due diligence on RBC risks and reflect where retailers stand at effectively leveraging their influence and meeting their responsibilities under the OECD Guidance. The session will also provide an opportunity to learn from strategies applied in the finance sector given significant parallels between the management of brand and sustainable investment portfolios. Interpretation is available in French.
