Supply Chain Sustainability: Moving From ‘Why’ to ‘How’
Date/Time: October 12, 2021 (1-2PM ET / 10-11AM PT)
Today, supply-chain and sustainability executives are being held to a higher degree of responsibility from both customers, regulatory officials and investors. A global study by Unilever found one in three customers purchasing from brands with perceived social or environmental impact. As a result, more companies are leveraging technology to incorporate measurable sustainability improvements in their supply chains.
Leading brands are setting internal targets, adjusting sourcing and procurement policies to align with the company’s ESG policies, engaging with suppliers on ESG performance and joining industry and sector networks to get educated on best practices. However, companies may have thousands of suppliers of different sizes in different locales with different ESG-related mandates, making it difficult for companies to maintain complete visibility of supply chains and hold suppliers accountable to sustainability-related goals.
