Responsible Sourcing Council

In recent years the transparency of the company supply chain has become increasingly important. The Council seeks solutions to multi-tier supply chain transparency, supply chain risk management, sustainability strategy alignment, and other challenges facing responsible sourcing professionals. Failing to address these issues could have cost, reputation, and growth consequences for companies. Whilst sector-specific gatherings on responsible sourcing have existed for some time, this Council brings together a uniquely wide spectrum of participants from different industry sectors. The confidential dialogue of these diverse peers combines a broader perspective with insights from companies facing similar challenges in different circumstances.
