How to manifest equality and sustainability in organisations
Two seminars will be given at LUSEM with a mingle lunch in between. You sign up for the seminars you would like to attend, either with or without lunch.
- Seminar 1:
Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goal No 6 Clean Water
10.00-11.30, in the Crafoord Hall.
- How can the ambitious Agenda 2030 be put into practice?
- How can we improve that more than 40 percent of the population around the world is affected by water scarcity?
- How can reduced gender gaps in the supply chain significantly benefit the most vulnerable?
These and other questions will be addressed when Parul Sharma, CSR expert and former Counsel and Head of CSR Compliance at Vinge Law Firm and chairman of the Swedish Government’s delegation for Agenda 2030, and Cecilia Chatterjee-Martinsen, Executive Director WaterAid Sweden give a joint seminar.
Parul Sharma will present the findings from the ITUC Global Rights Index 2017. This index ranks 139 countries against 97 internationally recognized indicators to assess where workers' rights are best protected in law and in practice.
Cecilia Chatterjee-Martinsen will present why and how the corporate sector should engage in water and how corporate water stewardship also should include communities access to save water, sanitation and hygiene.
Open questions-and-discussion session.
11.30-12.00, Ljusgården (outside the Crafoord hall).
- Seminar 2:
The EU Directive (2014/95/EU) on non-financial and diversity information: Is a new toothless tiger born?
12.00-13.30 in the Crafoord Hall.
Listen to three experts who will present and discuss their different perspectives on if and how the EU Directive will meet the challenges with developing relevant sustainability reporting and more sustainable organizations:
