Basic training on responsible purchasing practices

Im Basistraining erfahren Unternehmen, wie sich Ihre Einkaufspraktiken auf die Arbeitsbedingungen in der Lieferkette auswirken und wie sie diese verbessern können.

Das 30-minütige Basistraining im Videoformat bietet eine Einführung in das Thema. Es richtet sich an alle Mitarbeiter*innen aus Abteilungen, die in Einkaufspraktiken involviert sind, darunter CSR, Einkauf, Design, Personal, Qualitätssicherung und Buchhaltung. Das Video ist in deutscher und englischer Sprache verfügbar und wurde vom Bündnissekretariat mit Unterstützung des Bündnismitglieds ALDI Süd erstellt.

Having attended this training, brands and retailers will know

  • what is understood by purchasing practices and who influences them.
  • how their own actions can impact workers in the supply chain.
  • how price pressure affects the wages of workers in the supply chain.
  • by which means your company can contribute to better working conditions in the supply chain through more responsible purchasing practices.

Responsible purchasing practices are a key building block for companies to meet their due diligence obligations and contribute to better working conditions in their supply chain. Purchasing practices encompass the way brand companies and retailers interact and do business with the manufacturers that supply their products.

They are affected by many departments within the company and have a significant impact on the workers in the suppliers’ production facilities. Positive change can therefore only be achieved if all departments pull together.
