E-Learning launched to Protect Human Rights in Supply Chains

London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC) has developed an eLearning suite on Protecting Human Rights in the Supply Chain specifically for public procurement practitioners, in collaboration with our partner consortium Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges (APUC) and the University of Greenwich. Participants will learn why protecting human rights in the supply chain is important to the public sector, how to assess and prioritise risks, monitor supply chains, respond to abuses and measure and report effectiveness. There’s also a module on compiling an annual Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement under the Modern Slavery Act. The suite was written by Dr Olga Martin-Ortega, Reader in Public International Law and leader of the Business, Human Rights and Environment Research Group at the University of Greenwich and LUPC Director, Andy Davies FCIPS. The University of Greenwich and APUC co-funded the project. The E-Learning is freely available upon registration at www.lupc.ac.uk/modern_slavery
