LANDMARK project to share three years of experiences at final conference

Challenges that procurers face when purchasing socially responsible products, the best methods to successfully implement social procurement, the risks and opportunities associated with on-site audits, and models and proofs for the verification of supply chains will be among the topics discussed at the LANDMARK project final conference, taking place in Bremen (Germany) on 27 March 2014. The event is free of charge, and the programme and registration details will be published shortly.

The conference will share the most important conclusions of the three year project through workshops, discussions and expert-contributions. Procurers and administrators, staff of NGOs and policy-makers, certifiers and company-representatives are invited to join. A welcome event will be held on the evening before the conference in the Bremen Parliament, and will feature the interactive LANDMARK-exhibition - a mixture of multimedia and web-technologies.

The LANDMARK project aimed to change local authority consumption habits and enable them to act as key drivers for the promotion of fair working conditions in global supply chains. The project helped local authorities purchase fairly produced products, and by doing so drive improvement in the working conditions of workers in Asia and parts of Sub-Saharan Africa.
