Up to 90% of a company's carbon emissions come from the supply chain. While the supply chain can quickly become a risk if sustainability and compliance are not properly managed, it also offers an immense lever to accelerate sustainability goals. Investors, customers and regulatory requirements such as the recently passed Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act increasingly require companies to uplevel their supply chain requirements and goals.

How can companies effectively mitigate risks and unlock potential in the supply chain to meet sustainability targets? Join us as we discuss the supply chain’s crucial role on the journey to sustainability, explore best practices and learn from industry leaders.

What You will Learn:

  • Why the supply chain is crucial to meeting sustainability goals
  • How to measure, improve and report on your supply chain sustainability
  • How to engage suppliers to mitigate risks and unlock innovation and transformation
