Event Overview

Corporate compliance has traditionally been focused on corruption, but the rise of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has broadened the scope to include supply chain integrity, human rights issues, responsible labor practices, sanctions violations and environmental diligence, among other issues.

Striving to meet CSR commitments depends to a large extent on gathering accurate information, both before transactions and after allegations have been raised. The information you need to resolve CSR issues is often to be found in opaque environments where there are few documents to gather, and where the ability to dig deeply - from the presidential palace to conditions out in the field - is what counts.

Join veteran investigator Jim Mintz for an interactive discussion as he explores some of today's reputational risks and related CSR case examples from around the globe, illustrating the role investigators can play to help preserve corporate reputations.


Topics Covered

  • A review of selected reputational risks corporations face as they expand their focus on compliance to take in various issues of CSR.
  • Three case examples of CSR issues that arose during the diligence phase (sanctions, corruption and environmental issues). 
  • Three case examples of CSR issues that arose after allegations were raised (human rights, supply chain, prison labor).
  • An interactive discussion of CSR-related reputational risks that could concern SCCA members, followed by examples of where investigators might have a role to play. 
  • Five tips to help a corporation concerned about CSR risks diligence its potential CSR investigators.
