Supply Chain Sustainability is now a business imperative. 

Today, Supply Chain sustainability has a direct impact on growth, reputation and shareholder value. Companies that don’t embrace sustainability in the supply chain run the risk of reputational damage, decreased sales and an inability to recruit top talent.


But, this is about more than just business value. Decarbonising global supply chains is a fundamental step in fighting climate change. You are a key player in creating vital change for the greater good.

Moderated by Maria Villablanca, Co-Founder, CEO Future Insights Network

As the world faces increasingly complex challenges, the impact on supply chains has been profound. In this session we explore what the new supply chain paradigm looks like, and discuss how sustainable objectives are intrinsically linked to digital transformation, advanced planning and digital supply networks.

Key discussion areas:

  • Building a sustainable supply chain 

  • Embedding agility into the end-to-end supply chain model

  • Creating a data-led digital mindset

11:15 - 11:45             Spotlight: Shaping the Future of Sustainable Business


Jenny Wassenaar, Chief Sustainability Officer, Trivium Packaging

To create sustainable metal packaging, Trivium underpin their products with environmentally conscious operations. They recognize that caring for the climate is a business imperative, so customers, suppliers, employees, and shareholders increasingly expect them to make meaningful efforts towards positive climate action. A key part of the meaning behind ‘containing what matters’ is to be able to make responsible sourcing decisions – and to help customers do the same. They employ a range of measures to keep track of sustainability performance in their supplier base. They believe that, in their journey towards positive climate action, every effort counts. But what efforts have made the most impact? In this talk, Jenny Wassenaar, CSO, will discuss how Trivium measures and monitors sustainable and ethical practices in their supply chain, boost supplier engagement and support carbon reduction within the value chain.


Key Takeaways:

1) How Trivium track and trace sustainability information throughout the organization

2) Wall to wall constructions

3) Zero-emission plant

4) Engaging in large-scale collaborations

11:45 - 12:15            Keynote: Optimizing Digital Supply Chains to Reduce Waste, Drive Process Efficiency and Create Business Value


Jim Bralsford, Senior Director, Industry & Solutions Marketing, Kinaxis

Sustainability and resilience go hand in hand. Sustainability is now a key business objective, however, operationalizing it is a barrier to progress. In this session we discuss how digitization of the supply chain can work in parallel with sustainability objectives by improving efficiency, reducing waste and enhancing decision-making.

13:45 - 14:15             Keynote: Aligning Digital Transformation with Strategic Imperatives

Harald Emberger, Chief Supply Chain Officer, Beiersdorf AG

Beiersdorf AG is among the largest FMCG companies in the world that are in the midst of overhauling their supply chains for sustainability. By 2025, Beiersdorf aims to make all its packaging refillable, reusable or recyclable, reduce its scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions and production facility waste by 30% (vs. the 2018 base year),  and ensure all of its primary renewable raw materials come from sustainable sources. In this keynote presentation, Harald Emberger, Beiersdorf's Chief Supply Chain Officer, will outline the strategies and tools they're deploying to build a greener and cleaner supply chain to make a measurable and positive environmental contribution.

14:15 - 15:00         Power Panel: Operationalizing Sustainable Supply Chain Discussion


Sheri Hinish, Global Practice Leader, Sustainability Services, Alliances, and Strategy, IBM

Heidi Landry, CPO, Enterprise Supply Chain, Johnson & Johnson

Lara Young, Group Climate Change Director, Costain

Moderated by Maria Villablanca, Co-Founder, CEO Future Insights Network

Sustainability is now a firm responsibility of supply chain professionals. Given that the carbon footprint of the E2E supply chain for manufacturing organisations can equate to up to 80% of an organization’s emissions, it is the task of supply chain professionals to understand, measure and reduce the scope 1,2 & 3 emissions of their operations. 


In this session we explore how organizations should be taking the crucial first steps and importantly examine how supply chain optimization strategies and digital transformations can play a role in building sustainable supply chains.

15:00 - 15:30             Spotlight: Building the Skills for the Future of Work in Supply Chain


Gladis Araujo, VP Global Quality Systems & Supply Chain, Mattel Inc.

As the digital revolution continues to progress, the shortage of labor/energy/raw materials, global disruptions (COVID/War), ageing society, accelerating climate change, a “skills gap” crisis is evolving affecting the future of work. There is an urgent need to not only continuously upskill and reskill to survive in the workplace, but to properly lead the future of work.


Companies need to develop the skills and knowledge capability within their workforce to be able to drive this forward.What are the key drivers and impacts of the upcoming “skills gap” crisis in supply chain? What are the necessary skills for the future of work? What are the best practices to develop these skills?

15:30 - 16:00             Networking Coffee & Event Close

Stay with us at SSCE - a sustainable and purpose driven venue

We’ve partnered with an exceptional, truly sustainable venue in London, the Good Hotel.


The floating platform of the Good Hotel was bought in the Netherlands in a derelict state. After months of hard work to meet UK standards, the hotel was ready to be towed on top of a submersible cargo barge across the North Sea. 


Once at it’s final destination in London, the Good Hotel was filled with up-cycled furniture, and sustainable products and building materials throughout the hotel, so The Good Hotel not only looks good, but is Good.
