Do you really know your supply chain? It’s a critical early step in any sustainability program. Data tells us that our biggest impacts are further back in our supply chains, where many brands have limited visibility, leverage or direct contractual relationships. But if you don’t know where your products and materials are made, under what conditions and by whom, it becomes challenging to effectively tackle climate change, chemicals management, animal welfare, and human rights issues – among others. Mapping out the relationships between you and your supplier network can help you to better identify and prioritize risks and hotspots, measure impacts like energy and water use, and support improvement opportunities. Join this session to gain practical insights to map your supply chain and overcome common data gathering challenges.
