when 17 July 2023 - 28 July 2023
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 EC
fee EUR 740

With the growing global integration of companies, their area of responsibility for the ecological, social and human rights impacts associated with their activities are part of discussions in societies and politics. Transparency, traceability and compliance with sustainability standards are requirements that investors, consumers, supervisory authorities and environmental and human rights groups demand in the form of corporate due diligence reporting. For example, consumers and consumer associations are increasingly demanding information about the conditions under which goods are manufactured. Production conditions thus become part of the product quality.

This summer school programme will address the following topics:

- Sustainable Management in the new era of transparency
- Legislation on Supply Chain Due Diligence
- Sustainable Reporting and the requirements of different standards
- Technological solutions to support dure diligence processes (Blockchain, Platforms etc.)

The summer school programme consists of a two week on campus phase in Nuremberg in July 2023 and a preceding online-phase (onboarding-meeting and provision of material).

Participants can participate in a diverse cultural and social programme together with the partcipants from all summer school programmes offered within the OHM International Summer School.
