Join our webinar to learn more about the Sustainability and what it means for your business.

16th September 2021 | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM HKT

Summary

Sustainability performance is fast becoming a business imperative. In recent years, financial institutions and corporates are under increased scrutiny by investors, shareholders, governmental regulators, consumers, employees and consumers, demanding for strong sustainability credentials and demonstrate commitment to reducing their environmental impact of their business operations. 

 

While they work hard to improve their sustainability requirements in response to investor and consumer demands, addressing the supply chain’s impact on sustainability is also key.

 

In some industries, up to 98% of a business’ environmental impact is manifested through its supply chain. Often multi-tiered and disparate, supply chains can expose companies

to hidden risk that negatively affect their sustainability and ESG status and score, such as human rights abuses, labour standards, natural resource depletion, corruption and many more.

 

Companies are advised to consider and address these potential concerns before they become problems, in order to enable resiliency and future-proof their operations while positively impacting the planet.

 

The identification of supply chain partners to ascertain compliance status, communicate sustainability requirements, gaps and, most importantly, engagement to drive quantifiable improvements, is top of mind for key executives mindful of mitigating and managing their environmental footprint.
