Building sustainable, climate-resilient supply chains for your business


16 April 2020

Building sustainable, climate-resilient supply chains for your business - edie.net

This one-hour webinar will explore how businesses are moving from ‘risk’ to ‘resilience’ with their supply chains by championing sustainability, increasing transparency, and engaging suppliers with climate action.

As the threats of the climate crisis become ever more real, the onus is on businesses to future-proof operations through effective engagement with the supply chain. From comprehensive measurement and auditing through to the development of collaborative initiatives to spur collective action – this is arguably the most important piece of the sustainability puzzle.

This edie webinar, hosted in association with UL, will bring together a selection of sustainability and supply chain experts to showcase how organisations large and small can engage with suppliers to deliver deep decarbonisation and accelerate climate action.

Specifically, the webinar will equip energy and sustainability professionals with unique insights into how to spur the use of renewable energy among suppliers; enhance social sustainability at every point in the chain; and monitor and report progress.

Discussion points

  • Carrot or stick: How to decarbonise your supply chain?
  • The role of transparency and risk analysis in future-proofing product supply
  • Looking beyond the ‘four walls’ to drive sustainability
