amfori Annual Event 2022

The amfori annual event brings together international businesses, stakeholders, policy-makers and sustainability practitioners to collaborate and exchange views on responsible trade and sustainable supply chains.  

The theme of this year’s two-day event is “Collaborating for Impact in the Human Rights and Environmental Due Diligence (HREDD) Ecosystem.”

The event will take place in Brussels (Belgium) on 19 and 20 October 2022.

In a context where due diligence is high on the EU policy agenda, amfori will provide space for participants to learn, interact, network, and share expectations and best practices in managing responsible trade and sustainable supply chains.


As driving positive impact on the ground requires collaboration from multiple actors – business, civil society, NGOs, international organisations and local governments – our annual event will present the dynamics and different facets of the HREDD ecosystem.

 

Inspiring Keynote Speeches

Keynote speeches on environmental and social due diligence will shed light on the present and future of sustainable businesses, while the enabling role of industry collaborative initiatives in ensuring that the high policy ambition can be implemented on the ground will be debated.

 

Discussion panels and

Practical workshops

Practical workshops will provide knowledge and insights on how sector specific partnerships can mitigate social and environmental risks in complex supply chains. Participants will also be discussing how to make the most out of data and technological solutions to support companies’ due diligence efforts.

Networking

After three years of events that only took place on-line, we are excited to be organizing this year’s event ‘in person’ so that we and participants can get to know one another, network and exchange ideas, or just have a casual conversation.
