Episode Sneak Peek

After years of charting new territory, capturing metrics and evaluating the results, the message is clear: strategic sustainability makes good business sense. Leading companies recognize the opportunity and are pursuing new business models that support sustainable practices. 

Technology plays an important role in reshaping supply chain management, but the digital era we live in today requires something more than operational tweaks. Lack of visibility can put your organization at substantial risk on multiple levels. To deliver on the sustainability promise, collaborative, transparent supply chain practices must be in place and effectively executed on a consistent basis. 

In this installment, McCord and Rumbolo share their perspectives on what it takes to be a good corporate citizen and discuss how new digital capabilities are helping organizations better manage their sustainability data. They also provide insight into the relationship between an organization’s supply chain and its sustainability impact.  

While efforts to reduce environmental impact are important, sustainability claims are meaningless if companies fail to provide transparency.  In an age of immediate feedback and instant communication, consumers can easily determine if a company is authentic and lives by its values. That’s where new tracking and reporting capabilities are playing a vital role by helping organizations better manage their sustainability data and more accurately demonstrate results.

Tune in to learn how leading companies are sharpening their focus and learning how to take a more proactive approach to integrating sustainability into their business strategy.
