ReThink HK 2022 : Video-on-Demand

Technology, Traceability and Transparency: The Supply Chains Opportunity for Sustainability

Day 1 - 5th Oct | 14:55 - 15:40

Location: Sustainable Resources Theatre

Redefining Value

Overview

Traceability and transparency provide opportunities for companies to assess and mitigate risks, find supply chain efficiencies, meet regulatory requirements, and verify and make social and environmental claims. Alongside the development of more advanced technologies, companies are now stepping up efforts to more closely scrutinise supply chains to deliver more credible, real-time tracking, data collection and sharing – from the very start of the supply chain through to end-use.

Learnings

  • What is the state of play in Hong Kong?
  • What is the leading practice and expectations of businesses in developing transparency and traceability across highly complex supply chains?
  • How can we make use of advanced technologies and controls to better understand suppliers and the provenance and journey of products and their inputs, and improve the tracking of our footprint throughout supply chains?

Post Event Actions

  • Gain insights on how businesses are increasingly embracing supply chain transparency and traceability as part of their sustainability efforts.
  • Rethink Hong Kong’s role and contribution to regional and global sustainable supply chain management.

My Sustainability Goals for 2022:

Most companies in Hong Kong are still at the early stage of their climate journey. I hope to see more companies moving beyond compliance-based Greenhouse Gas Emissions reporting, to setting up more ambitious sustainability targets and implementing concrete actions for reducing their climate impact.
