SGS New Webinar - Value Chain Risk Management: Assurance Approaches to Sustainability in Agriculture

The objective of this one hour webinar is to update on the increasing space and attention paid to the case of sustainability issues, especially focused on worker issues in global value chains.

Geneva, Switzerland, October 05, 2015 --( There have recently been some high level media coverage for instance on tea plantations in Asia. SGS will take this opportunity to overview the types of analysis being undertaken to ensure that workers in the direct food production are well treated according to the ethical requirements of global food businesses. Whilst the agriculture sustainability topic is nothing new, what is in focus is the number of global organisations that are pushing requirements through every tier of their value chain, and now charging their suppliers in turn to take ownership and accountability for primary producers. SGS will look at some of the topics covered and see what this might mean for your value chain.


This webinar builds on the SGS Value Chain Risk Management series which focuses on topics of sustainability and integrity from building robust value chain risk management systems, to evaluating performance, to communicating performance. Every brand today wants to tell a convincing story about the ethics in their value chain. Yet with growing global pressure to compete and the movements of significant numbers of workers, there has never been a greater risk to reputations of global companies arising from value chain risks.


Dr. Colin Morgan, Global Product Manager – Value Chain Systems Risk

Dr. Morgan holds a doctorate in organizational responsibility and has global responsibility for the SGS service delivery for Responsible Sourcing risk-based evaluations for organizations globally.

Louise Hawson, Managing Director, Sustainable Balance

Ms. Hawson is the Managing Director of Sustainable Balance, a UK-based consultancy that advises companies on their Sustainability Strategy and Performance Measurement.

Target Audience

This webinar will be of interest to sustainability strategists, value chain experts, procurement specialists in agriculture products, brand and marketing management teams. In short, anyone who is accountable for the performance and reputation of food based products in an organisation.
