Stakeholder pressure from investors, shareholders, customers and non-profits to push sustainability into the supply chain has significantly increased in recent years. The Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) Standards, the first global standards for sustainability reporting, also requires an increased focus on sustainability throughout the supply chain. At the same time, many companies rank supply chain practices as the biggest challenge to improving their sustainability performance. Implementing sustainability best practices in the supply chain can be difficult because of the scale and complexity of many supply chains.
This webinar will focus on tangible regional experiences and best practice examples with a positive ESG impact in the areas of sustainable sourcing all the way through the supply chain to end consumer (re)use initiatives.
