The event is the continuation of the popular symposium "Conflict Minerals & Sustainable Supply Chain", which iPoint has been hosting in Germany since 2013. From 2019, the symposium will be part of iPoint's two-day event fw:transparency.
The symposium provides presentations and panel discussions with top-class experts from the business, academic, and legal sphere. Proceeding from the assumption that compliance with the law is a precondition for the Circular Economy, they will shed light on existing and upcoming laws, reporting frameworks, and corporate challenges of sustainable sourcing, sustainable products, and sustainable value chains with a particular focus on the circular economy and related digitalization trends, including blockchain.
The EU Conflict Minerals Regulation, RoHS and California Proposition 65 are also on the agenda.
The event is aimed at anyone professionally involved in product compliance, circular economy, related digitalization trends, as well as regulations and requirements such as RoHS, REACH, CSR, responsible minerals- and sourcing-related laws, as well as other trending developments and challenges governing product, supply chain, and enterprise stewardship.
The symposium will take place at the Stadthalle Reutlingen, the first and only city hall in Germany that carries out events completely climate-neutral. It is one of the best Green Globe-certified event venues in Germany and has several other sustainability certificates.
