India is one of the fastest growing economies worldwide holding numerous opportunities for investors. Despite rapid growth, chemical companies operating in India are faced with a number of challenges such as bribery and corruption, gender discrimination, health problems in supplier factories, exposure to harmful chemicals and corresponding impacts on local communities. 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 chemical 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 chemical companies can undertake and what companies in the sector have done to make progress on their sustainability journey, with a specific focus on risk management and mitigation measures addressing child labour, discrimination and community impacts in the Indian context
  • Answer your questions on the topic

The training will be held by Luke Wilde, CEO of management consultancy twentyfifty ltd. and Rishi Sher Singh from Advisory for Sustainable & Responsible Business (ASRB). twentyfifty has over a decade’s experience of helping multinational companies and their global value chains to understand and manage social impact using a human rights framework.
