The objective of this 1 hour webinar is to guide organisations that seek to control and understand the ethical and risk-based issues in their value chain. The focus of this webinar is the specific use of a Value Chain Risk Governance System as a tool to use to drive compliance to the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Following a short outline of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 requirements we then move on to define why a value chain is more than a supply chain and why your organization benefits from understanding it.

We present a risk based management governance system approach that organizations are adopting to better control the ethical, social and environmental risks in entire value chains. We introduce the elements of Value Chain Risk Governance System that will provide organizations a logical and coherent framework that will benefit as they take control of the worker ethical risks in their sphere of influence. A Value Chain Risk Governance System can benefit organisations in providing the strategy that enables them to protect and safeguarding their reputation through driving greater transparency in their value chain.

This is the first of a series of DNV GL webinars on the subject of understanding and controlling Value Chain Risk. DNV GL webinars are designed to support organisations to succeed in developing comprehensive risk-based strategies for responsible operations around the World and to support them in every step during the implementation.
