Within the global supply chain, actions speak louder than words. Leaders now know that sustainability has a direct impact on growth, reputation and shareholder value. If company values are misaligned or outdated they run the risk of serious reputational damage, decreased sales and a loss of top talent.
For some, 30-year targets are too distant and delays meaningful change today. Decarbonising global supply chains as rapidly as possible is imperative in fighting climate change. It’s time to champion those who are already providing meaningful action.

Navigating companies through the rocky world of climate action has proved an increasingly difficult task as external crises have increased. However, it has been recently reported that up to 84% of supply chain leaders still plan to invest in climate adaptation and mitigation measures within the next two years.
What are the supply chain sustainability trends and what actions should supply chain leaders take to address them? How can digital transformation aid the pace of change?

Climate change is rapidly transforming the global investment landscape, creating new risks and opportunities.To evaluate these risks and support the transition to a low-carbon economy, supply chain investors and others in the financial world need information. Currently, however, they face a lack of high-quality, reliable, and comparable data needed to efficiently price climate-related risks and avoid greenwashing.
In this powerful keynote, Charlotte Gardes-Landolfini details how to close the data deficit and strengthen climate information architecture.
