Why it’s time for CPOs to take the lead on ESG
Join this Supply Management Insider webinar, produced in partnership with IHS Markit, to find out more about the benefits of adopting a more holistic and technology-driven ESG strategy
The pressure on global supply chain leaders to ensure their company meets its commitments in terms of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) – and to prove that it is doing so – has never been greater. The risk posed by neglecting these metrics has never been higher. Fortunately, with the latest technology, a task that was once arduous, complex and time-consuming, has never been simpler – and the incentive for organisations to invest in ESG has never been more compelling.
Investing in a Third-Party Risk Management Solution (KY3P) and an ESG data management system can help organisations continuously monitor their suppliers (not just when they are onboarded or on a periodic basis) and minimise the financial and reputational risk.
Join this Supply Management Insider webinar, produced in partnership with IHS Markit, as we discuss how by implementing a more holistic, technologically-driven ESG strategy, companies can understand where they are today – and why a continuous process of improvement is needed if organisations are to get ahead of the curve and stay there.
