In this five-part podcast series, sponsored by Assent Compliance Inc. (Assent), I explore market impacts of emerging regulations on supply chain compliance and the supply chain professional. During the course of this series, I visit with several members of the Assent team to introduce the topic, look at Human Trafficking and Slavery (HTS), supply chain risk management programs, CSR value propositions, the current state of responsible mineral sourcing and where all of this is headed. In this fourth episode, I visit with Jared Connors, subject matter expert for Assent Compliance on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) on the current state of conflict minerals/responsible minerals. Join us tomorrow where we wrap us this series on emerging regulatory areas in a conversation with Jonathan Hughes.
