Exclusive MDB session available to all registrants of the FIDIC Regional Contract Users' Conference

Wednesday, May 11, 2022
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM (CEST)

Global supply chains supporting the rise of renewable energy and energy storage include mining and processing of minerals that are often linked to forced labour.  To support forced labour risk mitigation, companies need to strengthen related procurement processes by including forced labour bidder declarations, qualification requirements and strengthened contractual provision in procurement. As a key recent example, the World Bank has enhanced its Standard Procurement Documents to require its borrowers to strengthen procurements involving solar panels/solar components. The panel will discuss the issues arising in the renewable energy supply chain and ongoing industry efforts to mitigate those risks, and protect the workers globally supporting the energy transition.
