Businesses are now expected to manage issues outside their immediate control and throughout their supply chains. Issues like carbon footprints and human rights are difficult enough to manage at home, much less in suppliers on the other side of the world.
The experts will present findings from over 250 academic papers and industry reports on how to build a sustainable international supply chain. Participate in the discussion of common international supply chain risk questions, such as:
how have international supply chain risks changed over time?
why the emerging issues matters, and how have your peers acted on them?
how can you measure the results of your international supply chain risk initiatives?
