ICC Supply Chain Forum

Managing global supply chains has never been easy. Today, this is one of the toughest challenges for international business. At this year’s ICC Supply Chain Forum from 21 to 23 March in Berlin, we discuss the regulation and digitalisation of supply chains with experts from politics, business and academia.

How can a holistic approach to supply chain regulation be ensured? How can digitalisation contribute to climate-friendly supply chains and help companies meet their due diligence obligations? How can digital tools help make supply chains more efficient and resilient? What will the paperless trade of the future look like?

On the second day of the Forum, Prof. Dorothée Baumann-Pauly moderates a panel discussion on “Digitalization for Human Rights” as part of the workshop series “International Trade going Digital”.

The regulation of supply chains at national and European level are prime examples of companies‘ commitment to responsible and sustainable business practices in their international operations. How can digital tools contribute to this, where are the limits? What digital approaches are companies taking to due diligence in their supply chains? What are the goals of the Global Battery Alliance? In this workshop, we want to discuss these and other questions with you and experts from business, academia and politics.
