Driving Corporate Social Responsibility, the perspective from the Ethical Trading Initiative

  • Sutton Arms 6 Carthusian Street, London EC1M 6EB (map)

This December, we are exploring the world of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) thanks to the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), a membership organisation that helps businesses tackle the many complex questions about what steps they should take to trade ethically, a key strategic matter in today’s economic landscape.

From helping H&M tackle modern slavery to putting Tesco and Oxfam in contact to find better ways to source & purchase their products, ETI is the link between companies, trade unions and NGOs, as solving labour rights issues often implies working with unusual bedfellows. With international labour rights standards as a point of reference, ETI provides guidance to companies, coordinate projects on the ground and measure impacts for workers in supply chains. More broadly, ETI faces similar challenges and opportunities as other organisations trying to drive the corporate responsibility agenda further.

To tell us a bit more, we are happy to welcome Peter Mc Allister, Director of ETI and David Bezagu, Senior Advisor. They’ll take us through their experience of trying to change corporate behaviour and together we’ll discuss the broader CSR space. We’ll meet on Tuesday 4th from 7pm upstairs at the Sutton Arms - 6 Carthusian Street, London EC1M 6EB

If you’re interested in attending, check your emails for the invite RSVP or send us an email at and we'll put you on the list!
