NL Embassy / MDBC: Responsible Manufacturing
September 15, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Dear MDBC members and invited guests of the Netherlands Embassy,
The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and MDBC are pleased to invite you to a webinar on ‘Responsible Manufacturing: Practices & Tools for Responsible Business Conduct (RBC) in Malaysia’s Manufacturing Sector’.
Manufacturing is a major component of Malaysia’s economy and many Dutch companies are active in the sector. The Dutch government expects RBC to be at the forefront of a company’s business approach, also when operating abroad. This means taking responsibility for the impact of your business and your supply chain on the environment, society, and employees, while striving for economic success. Business are making efforts to ensure they operate in a responsible way, but this can sometimes be challenging. During the webinar we will present practical tools and offer ample space to share experiences on how to put responsible business first in your organization. The focus of the webinar will be on labour practices.
During the session, speakers from the Ministry of Human Resources (Malaysia), International Labour Organization, and Responsible Business Alliance will inform you on the latest policy developments and provide practical tools and programs to put RBC in practice at your company. We are glad to announce that Dutch multinational company Besi APAC will also share their experience on conducting business responsibly in Malaysia. You are encouraged to share your experiences and raise any questions you might have during this webinar session!
