As the partnership between Danish Export Association, Global Compact Network Denmark, Ethical Trade Denmark, Bæredygtige Værdikæder, Danish-Chinese Business Forum and The Trade Council sets out to focus on sustainable value chains, the DCCC is invited to co-organize the first launching event under the title "Building a Sustainable Value Chain From China to Europe – Insights for Danish Companies". Danish companies across industries are invited to join the event which is happening on 26 May.
What does a "sustainable value chain" mean - and what can you do to achieve it?
Join us, as we invite Danish companies across industries to learn about what it takes to create a sustainable value chain from China to Europe. The session will cover advice on how to navigate new EU directives and compliance with international standards, as well as feature insights on best practices for due diligence work, finding sustainable suppliers in China, and how to mitigate risks.
Whether you are a company already in China, or a company yet to make entry to the Chinese market - this session is for you.
