Afternoon Sessions

Responsible Supply Chains & Ethical Sourcing

Supply chains have become incredibly complex and opaque by today’s standards. However, there’s been an increasing amount of pressure from consumers, employees, and shareholders towards organizations implementing socially responsible supply chains providing transparency into the social (human & labor rights), environmental, sourcing, and overall governance throughout the lifecycle of goods and services. Over the next five years, the market is already looking to optimistically to grow between $889 million and $2.7 billion as organizations explore, implement, and scale a range of solutions, and as developers continue to build new tools. Our panel guests will share insights on the best practices, tools, and solutions available, along with the overall impact this shift will have on the future of the enterprise. 


Key Takeaways:

  • Best practices and business impact of moving towards a socially responsible supply chain
  • Insights on blockchain’s important role in the shift towards ethical supply chains
