OECD Side Session: Commercial Compliance
Accelerating Change, Measuring Progress
by STTI and Better Buying Institute

Side session of the OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

In this session we are putting the spotlight on the tools that we have at our disposal now and in the future to make commercial compliance measurable at an industry level. This discussion encompasses therefore the definition of commercial compliance and its components as introduced by STTI, the infrastructure and collaboration needed in the industry to create a globally aligned and effective approach to measurement and, finally, how we can collaborate across the industry to share data and discuss the actions we need to take to drive progress. The session will also explore key learnings from the measurements that are already being carried out.

To this end, the Better Buying Institute and STTI will share findings of their data collection. Based on the data they will share what purchasing practice improvements suppliers want brands to prioritize. They will explain how data can show real purchasing practice progress in the form of true partnerships. And they will put the collection of data on commercial compliance/purchasing practices in a legislative context, making the link with mandatory due diligence.

We kindly invite you to join this session on Tuesday, February 14 2023 from 16.00 – 17.00 CET. Please register below and we will send a link to follow the webinar and we will send you some additional information. We look forward to meeting you online!
