Niklas Egels-Zandén gave a talk on “Social Compliance and Sustainability: Research Outcomes and Discussion,” presenting insights from our ongoing research project. The event was organized by the Foreign Trade Association in Sweden in cooperation with the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) and the Business Environmental Performance Initiative (BEPI) and was attended by a diverse set of actors from the Swedish business community.
In the realm of the governance of labor standards in global supply chains, particularly the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) plays an important role. BSCI is an initiative of the Foreign Trade Association and seeks to develop and implement a system for improved working conditions in global supply chains. BSCI aims to implement the principle international labour standards protecting workers’ rights, such as International Labor Organization (ILO) conventions and declarations, the United Nations (UN) Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and guidelines for multinational enterprises of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
