Climate risks affect the supply chain by bringing great uncertainty over disruption, increased costs, and reduced efficacy. On the other hand, sustainable supply chain management can drive progress on climate protection and fair working conditions. Businesses which take meaningful action in this space will strengthen supply chain performance, as well as strengthening the communities along their supply chain.
This session will dive into the supply chain risks presented by climate change and showcase the benefits of assessing these risks through a human rights lens. It will feature examples from companies who have already embedded this approach in their supply chain practices. The speakers will provide perspectives from different sectors and geographies.
