Sustainable Supply Chains

Supply chains continue to be one of the most important devices for business to create positive impact in the world, with an estimated 80 per cent of global trade passing through them annually.

Sustainable supply chains can make a significant impact in promoting human rights, fair labour practices, environmental progress and anti-corruption policies. Companies that commit to advancing working conditions in their supply chains can significantly improve the lives of many people and lift millions out of poverty.
