Description

EVENT PARTNERSHIP:

The INFRASTRUCTURE SUSTAINABILITY COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA with the SUPPLY CHAIN SUSTAINABILITY SCHOOL

With more than 40 million people estimated to be in conditions of Modern Slavery worldwide, the Australian Parliament introducing legislation for a Modern Slavery Act in 2018, and countries including the UK, France and the USA enacting measures requiring companies to increase awareness, transparency and action around modern slavery in their supply chains, how can Australia’s infrastructure sector learn, adapt and flourish?

Come along to this FREE event for infrastructure professionals - particularly those in procurement, compliance, risk, sustainability and project management roles - and:

  • Understand what is meant by ‘Modern Slavery’ and the key risk areas
  • Find out how Modern Slavery touches Australian infrastructure supply chains
  • Learn about how businesses in the UK have adapted to the Modern Slavery Act of 2015
  • Hear case studies of Australian organisations and changes they’ve made
  • Discover how infrastructure procurement, products and materials decisions will be made
  • Find out what questions you can be asking and what information you can be tracking
  • Work with industry peers on some of the key issues surrounding Modern Slavery
  • Consider what true social, economic and environmental sustainability looks like.
