Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

Due diligence reporting on responsible purchasing practices: what the data tells us.

Feb 23, 2022 | 2:30 PM - 3:45 PM


The session will provide an overview of the current state of play of responsible purchasing practices (RPP) coverage within due diligence reporting. The session will highlight major barriers to comparable data collection and development of measurable indicators and surveys, as well as share examples of good practice in reporting on purchasing practices across self-reporting, established benchmarks and ESG frameworks. A panel will identify key areas for action and priority next steps to improve development of specific data points and supplier assessments, to allow for sector-wide tracking of this issue.
