Fireside Chat | Implementing Sustainability Throughout the Entire Supply Chain

Time: 1:30 PM – 2:00 PM EDT

Sponsored by Avetta

Presented by: Danny Shields, Quality, Health, Safety, Sustainability Professional, Avetta

While companies recognize the importance of achieving sustainable outcomes, they don’t realize most of that impact is in their supply chain. A recent survey of companies by Avetta found that while 79% and 63% of companies believe employee health and safety and reducing environmental footprint are “very important,” respectively, only 39% of respondents feel sustainability supply chain issues are “very important.”

The more intricate a supply chain is, the more prone an organization is to uncertainties and hidden risks. A majority of sustainability concerns and red flags stem from the supply chain. The average supply chain generates emissions that are 5.5 times greater than operational emissions. Supply chains are responsible for more than 3/4 of greenhouse gas emissions for several industry sectors. Supply chains are also responsible for over 90% of natural capital impact. 

Join us as our speaker discusses how companies accomplish the following to improve sustainability compliance in the supply chain: 

  • Set clear supply chain sustainability targets to report progress,
  • Implement ESG supply chain requirements through formal contracts,
  • Establish adequate governance structures,
  • Create incentives to improve supply chain performance,
  • Assess, manage, and monitor supply chain risks,
  • Enhance supply chain traceability and transparency,
  • Engage with suppliers,
  • And more!
