India is one of the fastest growing economies worldwide holding numerous opportunities for investors. Despite rapid growth, German companies operating in India are faced with a number of sustainability challenges such as bribery and corruption, discrimination, inadequate working conditions in the supply chain and environmental degradation.
Increasingly, governments, investors and shareholders, business partners, civil society and consumers expect companies of all sizes to have human rights due diligence processes in place to know and show that they respect human rights. The upcoming German National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights (NAP) will concretize expectations towards German companies including their subsidiaries and supply chains. Similar processes have started in other countries, e.g. UK Modern Slavery Act.

To support German companies operating in India and their business partners in implementing these expectations, the Global Compact Network Germany will pilot a cross-sectoral introductory training in autumn 2016.

Target group

Managers interested in / responsible for CSR, sustainability, procurement, strategy, compliance/corporate governance, human resources, product safety, local liaison officers

The training will:

  • Give an overview of the expectation on companies to conduct human rights due diligence including linkages with major sustainability frameworks and trends in India
  • Introduce five practical steps companies can take to get started
  • Provide examples of activities companies can undertake and have done to make progress on their sustainability journey in India, with a specific focus on risk management and mitigation measures addressing women’s empowerment, community impacts, living wages and forced labour
