Global Supply Chains: How will ESG, sustainability and circularity make a difference?
1 min read
Challenges presented by geopolitical conflicts and the pandemic have brought into sharp focus the fragility of global supply chains, forcing all players to re-evaluate their traditional operating models. Against this backdrop, the spectacular rise of ESG and sustainability has continued unabated, with businesses expected to play a role in solving the world’s biggest challenges including climate change, biodiversity loss, worker rights, social equity, waste, and pollution.
A circular system by design is coming into form across global industries. The shift to a closed-loop supply model tackles some of the root causes of climate change by designing-out and extracting value from waste, getting us closer to a sustainable future.
In this webinar, our expert panel examined the critical issue of how ESG, sustainability and circularity will impact global supply chains.
