About this talk

The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the significance of global supply chains in delivering economic, human, and societal value. With almost 80% of trade passing through supply chains, the majority of companies’ operations are held up by external workers, information and resources. Supply chains raise a number of ESG risks - from environmental pollution, to shortages of raw material and natural resources, workforce health and safety incidents and more.
