For the first time, UN Global Compact Network Italy is going to attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP), the main global event on Climate, with the international launch of the Position Paper “Sustainable Supply Chains: Responsibilities and Opportunities for Businesses”.
The Document was developed by the Italian Network with the contribution of more than 30 member companies of the UN initiative and particularly committed to the issue. The Paper focuses on the sustainable management of supply chains. It identifies challenges and opportunities with insights on the following topics: the reduction of Scope 3 emissions; the promotion and protection of human rights and decent work; and the management of negative externalities through circular solutions.
The conference will be held on November 17 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. CET and it will be hosted at the Climate Ambition Hub (UNGC Pavilion) at COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh (Green Zone). It will also be streamed live on UN Global Compact Network Italy's YouTube channel.
During the event, there will be speeches of Italian government and European Union representatives, the UN Global Compact and its Italian Network management. It will also be an opportunity to hear positive business testimonials. All speeches will be in English.
