Today's big businesses are expected to take responsibility for how their suppliers affect people and the environment.
The list of issues to address can be daunting: from ensuring safe working conditions to paying fair wages; ending child labor to improving product traceability; using water responsibly to avoiding corruption. And there is no shortage of stakeholders ready to hold companies to account for their failings; regulators, journalists, lawyers, customers, consumers, communities and others are all piling on the pressure.
What's more, building a sustainable supply chain is no easy task. Modern global supply chains are so vast and complex, that many companies just don't know where their inputs come from. Gaining visibility and control can be a problem as can keeping pace with regulations and industry commitments across multiple jurisdictions.
