Why do Danish companies need to actively engage in bettering working conditions for suppliers? Should you make a company specific code of conduct and how do you implement it and use it as an active tool in your everyday business?

At this Fabric Source Session, Ulla Riber, Head of Programme, CSR – Coop Danmark, will address these and other questions by reviewing their approach and procedures at a practical level. Coop is the largest Danish retail corporation and sells goods from all over the world. Coop has a high degree of practical experience with management of supply and workers conditions across boarders and cultures and thus lots of experience and knowledge to share with the listeners.

Johan Arnø Kryger, Head of Responsible Innovation at DAFI/NICE will furthermore introduce the NICE Code of Conduct and the NICE Manual as an additional tool to use when you work with these issues in your company. The NICE Manual is a structural tool that can be used to develop a company specific policy. Additionally, he will suggest how to implement it in the supply chain. NICE is a sustainability project under DAFI, which includes initiatives such as Fabric Source that work towards making the fashion industry more sustainable.
