Supply Chain Mapping and Traceability
Increasingly, companies are facing increasing demands for greater visibility into the working conditions in their supply chain beyond tier one. Supply chain mapping is a way for companies to trace the complicated network of deeper-tier suppliers and better understand the conditions workers face at these levels of their supply chain. The Fair Labor Association (FLA) will be providing guidance on how to conduct supply chain mapping for companies to better understand their complicated and intricate supply chains. This webinar will cover supply chain mapping basics, practical tips, and experiences from mapping a variety of raw materials supply chains. The training will cover guidance steps outlined in the Supply Chain Mapping, Transparency, Traceability guidance document. Join us to learn how to increase visibility into your supply chain. This session is an elective for the PPAI Product Safety Awareness initiative.
