Emerging Risks in Your Supply Chain

 

Part 3: Emerging Risks in Your Supply Chain

Does your supply chain offer your company security?
Have you assumed your suppliers meet the same rigorous standards as you?
Can you afford the consequences of remaining ignorant to who supplies your suppliers?

Robots and sweatshops? Centers of excellence in Guangdong and frontier markets in Ethiopia and Myanmar? Jobs, skills, worker retention and rising pay rates? Climate change, embedded carbon and China’s 13th 5-year plan? Speed to market and an even faster marketplace? Brand reputation and radical transparency? Your supply chain is what links these ideas with your products to your markets.

As corporate supply chains become more complex and influential in driving social, economic, and environmental impact, stakeholders of all types - from civil society organizations and NGOs to customers and consumers - are increasing their expectations of business to improve their efforts to build sustainable supply chains.

We've lined up a panel of experts to talk about:

  • What are some of the common supply chain risks to business?
  • Do you have any say in who supplies your suppliers?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities associated with sustainable supply chain management?

Come and learn about sustainable supply chain, how to build it, and what tools are available to us.
