The coronavirus pandemic is reinforcing the importance of responsible business conduct, including topics such as labour protections, managing impacts on workers in the supply chain and paying fair taxes to ensure governments have sufficient revenue to protect and develop their people. Human rights and human development should be at the core of corporate sustainability action.
The context makes the development of social indicators more relevant than ever and provides an opportunity to discuss responsible business models and the role of business in society.
What would a common set of core social expectations that all companies must meet look like? What are the current critical gaps or stoppages that prevent this from happening at the moment? Beyond the basics, what are the key social transformations that companies can contribute to?
Held in partnership with the World Benchmarking Alliance, join this online written discussion to share your views, examples and suggestions, whilst asking the experts their advice.
