DILIGENTIA – Association of Italici for Corporate Responsibility and Sustainable Development, organized a side event at the OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector.
As organizations, consumers and other stakeholders are increasingly demanding credible ethical claims in the supply chains, ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) risks are becoming increasingly central to sourcing and investment decisions as well as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting disclosure (according to EU Directives). In this changing landscape, creating an integrated framework consisting of standards, accreditations, programs and validation bodies is essential to provide stakeholders with reliable and verified information on the organizations’ ESG risks.
This session will present Get It Fair “GIF ESG Rating scheme” (first programme in the world approved by a national body for accreditation purposes according to international standards) integrating ethical label validation, ESG risk rating and Corporate Sustainability Reporting. Speakers will explain, from different perspectives (standardization and accreditation bodies, programme operators and validation bodies, academies and Chambers of Commerce) how the “Sistema Italia” is joining hands to enable brands and manufacturers in the garment and footwear to stay ahead of the curve in a rapidly evolving environment.
