Seminar on labor and environmental compliance on Oct 22
Sep '09
Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) will host a seminar on labor and environmental compliance at Global Sources: China Sourcing Fair Underwear and Swimwear in Hong Kong on October 22, 2009.

In today's merchandising world, Social Compliance or Social Accountability has been added to the classic “3 legged stool” of the quality-cost-lead time equation for most buyers.

Selecting suppliers with good labor, health & safety and environmental management systems is no longer simply an option, but a requirement of doing business with leading global brands and retailers.

Titled “Corporate Social Responsibility & the Buying Process: Choosing Responsible Manufacturing Vendors/Partners”, this seminar will help you understand the issues making labor & environmental compliance such high priorities for today's retail organizations and will walk attendees through the process of how to find, evaluate and choose responsible manufacturing partners.

Partnering with responsible factories both puts you ahead of the competition and reduces your risks in sourcing from offshore.

WRAP's Director of South East Asia Mr. Michael Lavergne will be the key speaker of this seminar. With more than 15 years work experience in the field of sourcing and manufacturing, Lavergne has been closely worked with many well-known global retailers and brands in 6 continents.

To know more about this seminar, contact Michael Lavergne at mlavergne@wrapcompliance.org.
