Join ICoCA for a panel presentation that will provide an overview of ICoCA and the benefits it provides to clients of private security companies. Hear from Philip Morris International (PMI), who have partnered with ICoCA to ensure the responsible provision of private security throughout their supply chain, and learn why Lloyds of London now offer preferential insurance premiums to organisations that contract ICoCA Member companies.

Questions covered will include:

  • How can clients of private security companies be assured that their providers will operate in accordance with human rights and international humanitarian law?
  • How should robust human rights due diligence be conducted on the private security supply chain?
