Join academics and senior business leaders to discuss the latest thinking in achieving sustainable supply chains.
Supply chains now span the globe involving millions of factories, farms, fields and forests. They create huge economic value but they also generate growing social and environmental challenges too including human rights, climate change, deforestation and waste. We need to create supply chains that work in a way that balances economic, social and environmental need, supply chains that are sustainable.
This event is the opening plenary of the Business School's inaugural Festival of Ideas. The event showcases the breadth and quality of Business School research, encouraging academic progression and connecting researchers.
