The online event GLOBAL TRADE, FAIR ENOUGH? hosted by the European Parliament Fair Trade Working Group will take place on 26TH January 2022, 13.00-15.00 CET.
The event will address the historic challenges faced by the European Union in developing new trade and corporate governance models that will lead to fair and sustainable global value chains and put people and Planet above profit. Two of the key components of this much needed approach to trade are Trade and Sustainable Development (TSD) policies, including the TSD chapters of trade agreements, and binding Human Rights and Environmental Due Diligence, as part of the Sustainable Corporate Governance initiative.
The event will consist of two panels:
Panel I: Human Rights and Environmental Due Diligence, will the legislation deliver?
Panel II: Trade and Sustainable Development, time to rightly implement.

Event will count with simultaneous interpretation to French and Spanish.
