twentyfifty: Addressing Human Rights in Coffee and Cocoa Value Chains

From January 16, 2020 09:00 until January 16, 2020 14:00

Categories: Partner Events

◊ Organiser: twentyfifty GmbH*

You are a coffee or cocoa grower, processor, trader, retailer, or even a financial institution and you want to find ways to better manage potential human rights impacts within your own operations and those of your business partners?

This event brings together the different actors of the coffee and cocoa value chain to strengthen the learning around embedding human rights due diligence, as set-out in the Commodity Trading Sector Guidance on the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
By sharing experience and inquiring into how they can interact on due diligence, the players involved can identify areas where implementation challenges need to be explored further.

The event will address questions, such as:

  • What are the specific responsibilities of each of the actors along the value chain?
  • What do companies need to address human rights impacts individually and what can be done in partnership with others?
  • How can companies generate buy-in of internal stakeholders and business partners to take action and ownership?
  • How to remediate human rights issues in the supply chains when they occur, individually and collectively?
  • What is the role of financial institutions to further the respect for human rights and what are their expectations?
