Published on Dec 01, 2016
On Thursday, December 1, 2016, a morning of reflection took place around the theme “Sustainable Development – Human Rights and Supply Chains: What Practices?”.
Organized in Paris, at the Economic, Social and Environmental Council, this morning debate was organized by the AEF group and the AEF sustainable development editorial staff.
All companies, whatever their size, are concerned by human rights : large companies and SMEs, NGOs, extra-financial rating agencies and tripartite organizations. How to develop a human rights policy? What are the pitfalls to avoid? What risks must companies in sectors as different as mass consumption, construction and energy management manage? What good practices do they already have in place?
Martine Combemale, Director of Human Rights Without Borders, was invited to answer these questions with other speakers : Sophie Thiéry, Advisor to the Economic, Social and Environmental Council; Fouad Benseddik, Director of Methods and Institutional Relations of Vigeo Eiris; Didier Bergeret, Director of Social Responsibility of the Consumer Goods Forum; Amélia Tiscornia, Chief Operating Officer of Scoping; Maxime Goualin, Human Rights Manager of Schneider Electric; Sarah Tesei, Director of Social Innovation of Vinci; Cyril Cosme, Director of the ILO Office for France.
