Training series on responsible purchasing practices
Between March and June 2021, the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles (PST) is hosting an online training series on responsible purchasing practices for members of PST and the Fair Wear Foundation. The series will address some of the most pressing issues companies are currently facing as they roll out their responsible purchasing programmes. The training offers support to CSR staff, purchasing staff and other related staff on effectively integrating responsible purchasing practices into their company practices, following on from the basic training on purchasing practices. The events will be delivered by the Thrive Collaborative, a consultancy organisation with human rights expertise and sector-specific practical experience along the textile supply chain.
In the training series, companies are supported on
How to integrate responsible sourcing practices into their business strategy
How to responsibly deal with a decline in orders in the context of COVID-19
Which methods they can use in the exchange with suppliers on open cost models
