The Essential Eight: edie launches supply chain sustainability handbook

Sustainability and CSR professionals looking to implement best practice to drive sustainability into the supply chain now have access to a new 'handbook' which provides expert advice and insight to tackle eight essential areas of supply chain management.

Launched ahead of edie’s Supply Chain Conference taking place in London on 27 June, the new handbook features practical advice on engaging with suppliers across areas like modern slavery, natural capital and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


Whether its utilising blockchain to expand traceability, collaborating with the sector to create desired practices, or enhancing community engagement for vulnerable workers, leaving supply chain management down to auditing isn’t enough in world pressed by resource constraints and climate change.

Featuring expert advice and case studies from Ikea, Asia Pulp & Paper, Primark and more, the handbook equips readers with knowledge and examples to embed new supply chain practices across eight essential areas.
