Impacts and Innovation: ISEAL’s 2013 Annual Conference
11-13 June 2013
ISEAL is the global association for social and environmental standards systems. Its annual conference is a signature event when the world’s most influential standards and certification programmes come together with leading businesses, government representatives, NGOs and other stakeholders passionate about increasing the impact of standards.
This year, standards with a proven commitment to credibility in sectors as diverse as forestry, agriculture, mining, biofuels and aquaculture will meet to discuss the tremendous drive toward demonstrating our impact and harnessing innovations that can make standards more effective.
The conference opens with an Evening Networking Reception featuring the launch of ISEAL’s Credibility Principles and a keynote address from Miguel Veiga-Pestana of Unilever. Two full days of sessions will follow, covering topics such as:
∙ Sustainable sourcing at high profile events
∙ Supply chain collaboration to collect data on impacts
∙ Benchmarking and how to meaningfully compare standards
∙ Using technology to enhance traceability
∙ The future of standards and emerging trends
∙ How the IT revolution is transforming certification and audits
The conference is taking place at the newly built and state-of-the-art Crystal, designed to be one of the world’s most sustainable buildings.
