LONDON, Oct. 24 /CSRwire/ - Exploring the ways to build a responsible, resilient and secure value chain to minimise risks and future proof business is underpinning idea for the majority of supply chain professionals.
Ethical Corporation went further and managed to break it down to the key areas of focus for the majority of world leading corporations. The key areas below are linked to the practical “how to”:
Map out the future for value chain sustainability: how to build long-term supply security and move from a policeman to a partner approach and create long-lasting relationships with suppliers.
Innovate across value chain and collaborate on an industry level: latest strategies on opportunities and challenges in creating circular product economies; effective B2B collaboration to mitigate deforestation and social risk of water use.
Fuse sustainability into purchasing and supplier empowerment: Best practice on aligning the objectives of the sustainability, procurement and supply chain functions; Build a worker dialogue to strengthen ethical trading results and drive factory management improvement.
The study is based on the months of research and communication with the top supply chain, procurement and sustainability executives primarily headquartered in Europe and North America of FTSE 500 brands.
The above topics are also taken as the main themes for Ethical Corporation’s Sustainable Supply Chain Summit (November 19-20, London).
