“Retailers and brands are under a lot of pressure to get their supply chains under control as consumers and investors demand more and more transparency on environmental and social impacts,” says Santhosh.
Santhosh is an expert in helping large companies reduce the environmental and social impacts of their complex global supply chains. He works with international clients to map their supply chains, to identify and manage risks, and to implement and enforce effective supplier codes-of-conduct. He also leads the global development of KPMG tools to help businesses measure and monitor the environmental and social performance of their suppliers and to trace product inputs and ingredients.
Santhosh also helps companies to achieve certification to a wide variety of sustainable supply chain standards and frameworks, including the SA8000 Standard on social accountability in workplaces, the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) and the Responsible Jewellery Council Code of Practice.
Outside work, Santhosh – who has over 25 years’ experience as a sustainability consultant – loves teaching and has given lectures on sustainability and climate change at a number of higher education institutions, including the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), and Xavier University Bhubaneswar (XUB).
