We are kindly informing Permanent Missions that as a part of the UNIDO and Global Social Compliance Programme (GSCP) collaboration for a sustainable suppliers’ capacity building programme, UNIDO is hosting at its premises the GSCP Members’ Annual Meeting, to be held on July 9th, 2013. At this occasion, UNIDO is also hosting the GSCP Board meetings and thematic working group meetings on July 8th and July 10th, 2013. 

The GSCP Members’ Annual Meeting is open to GSCP member companies and will gather top representatives of private sector manufactures and retailers from different sectors of the consumer goods industry. One of the subjects of the meeting will be the partnership between GSCP and UNIDO in creating sustainable supply chains, based on UNIDO’s capacity building framework REAP, to address  economic, social and environmental sustainability as per UNIDO CSR framework. 

Co-hosting of these events is part of UNIDO’s strategy on enhanced cooperation with private sector entities and fostering new Public-Private Partnership (PPP). It will also help to consolidate UNIDO’s role in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability.
