A Roadmap to Sustainable Supply Chain Standards: De-coding Progress, Challenges, and Best Practice

Global Sustainable Supply Chain Standards  

How are sustainable supply chain standards evolving and how can companies stay adaptive to demands for global transparency and accountability? As trade expansion increases the connectivity of countries and people's livelihoods, the pressure for globally operating companies to build supply chains that allow for full traceability and accountability of social and environmental impacts across international borders continues to build. This pressure has manifested in growing consumer activism and campaigning by internationally operating NGOs as well as in an increasing array of international frameworks, agreements, and national legislation. How companies respond, and the actions they take to understand and act upon the challenges presented by globalized production and supply chains will shape the marketplace, but also impact their own long-term survival.
