Meet iPoint on April 20th and 21st at the RBA Outreach Meeting Europe – a virtual event hosted by the Responsible Business Alliance.
Day 1 will explore the state of play of the EU journey towards mandatory due diligence legislation – including sessions featuring policy-makers and other important influencers in the ongoing legislative discussions. The presentations and panels will cover key elements of the legislation and their impacts, the EU member states’ position towards ongoing EU-level discussions, and the importance of collaborative efforts and collective initiatives for effective due diligence.
The discussions of Day 2 will focus on key thematic trends and areas for 2021 like responsible public procurement, the European Green Deal, forced labor, the EU Batteries Regulation, and the importance of collaborative partnerships for effective due diligence.
