The SEA Alliance has created the Anchoring Due Diligence six-part Webinar Series to provide support and guidance for seafood businesses. This is an integral part of the SEA Alliance aim to increase alignment on effective due diligence processes, and increase implementation of impactful approaches to address human rights risks.
The webinars are being facilitated by FishWise, and are being run in partnership with the World Benchmarking Alliance and the Global Tuna Alliance.
Please register for the third webinar in the series.
The third session is taking place on Thursday 1 December 2022 at 3pm GMT. This webinar will look at how responsible recruitment fits in, and relates to, Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD). It will look at the ‘supply chain of people’. This will cover what the recruitment journey looks like the migration related risks, and look at how recruitment fees are connected to forced labour. It will also cover the employer pays principle, mitigation and remediation.
We encourage the widespread sharing of this opportunity internally with management, leadership and procurement teams to build awareness on these core topics and to generate internal champions that can support the business in operationalising HRDD.
The dates and topics for each of the other webinars in the series will follow. You will be able to register for each individual session, and we hope you will take part in all of them.
Why you should take part
The six webinars will cover key aspects of HRDD in seafood supply chains. to help seafood businesses identify and act upon actual and potential human rights risks for workers in their operations and supply chains.
These training webinars will focus on human rights due diligence processes and key salient areas of risk that align with, and have been informed by, a survey of SEA Alliance member companies. There will also be the option for these webinars to be supported by follow up interactive 1:1, or small group sessions, as requested, to reinforce the messages and activities.
Each webinar will be one hour in length and are designed to:
- Inform participants about foundational HRDD concepts, best practices, and alignment against industry KPIs;
- Point out special considerations for specific supply chain segments;
- Link to key existing tools that can assist member companies in undertaking HRDD, (e.g. the SEA Alliance fishery risk assessment, PAS 1550 etc.); and
- Summarise and provide recommended actions companies can take to drive continuous improvement in their supply chains.
