Greencell, as members of the ETI, is proud to announce that it has instigated an in house training programme for commercial staff to raise awareness in the essentials of ethical trade, the business case and the impact of purchasing practices. The aim is to provide participants with a practical understanding of the key issues and concepts in ethical trade and the essential building blocks of an ethical trade strategy. Part of the training will demonstrate, using case studies and examples, how to build ethical trade into everyday working. These training sessions will commence in November.
By the end of the session participants will be able to:
- Define ethical trade
- Identify the advantages of ethical trade and communicate those to different stakeholders
- Recognise the contents of the ETI Base Code and some of the challenges in its implementation
- Identify and compare the stages and actors in different supply chains
- Identify different approaches to tackling workers’ conditions, with particular reference to purchasing practices
This further demonstrates Greencell’s commitment to the ETI Base Code and driving these principles throughout its supply base.
