60 percent of global trade takes place in global supply chains. In what kind of country do we want to make supply chains so sustainable that we comply with due diligence under the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights (NAP)? The AVE supports its members and is committed to a meaningful and practical improvement of social standards in the global supply chain.
