W1: Integrated Compliance: New EU and Global Standards

  • Understand how compliance with EU (as well as U.S. and Canadian) regulations on corruption, sourcing sustainably and using non-forced labor has placed a burden on firms looking to join global value chains. One solution is to harmonize compliance requirements.
  • Discuss how a harmonized or integrated approach allows firms to focus on synergies that exist in compliance programs addressing the EU's requirements for GSP+ status. Common elements include due diligence, whistleblower mechanisms, and adequate corporate governance.
  • Learn about the work of the non-profit Center for International Private Enterprise to pilot an integrated compliance program for Asian businesses in cooperation with the World Resources Institute and labor-oriented NGOs.

  • Stories and examples derived from ethics ambassadors in different companies:  illustrating what has worked and what has not, and some encouraging preliminary research on the benefits of an ethics ambassador network.
