Day 1: Tuesday 5th October 2021

11.00 – 14.00: Rethinking Supply Chains

Few businesses have full visibility on their supply chains – resulting in complex and sometimes indirect risks that are significant, material and challenging. The global pandemic has further exposed and is exponentially increasing those threats making it imperative for companies to revisit their supply chain strategies, address systemic risks and improve business resilience.

Beyond the continuing uncertainty caused from the pandemic is the imminent and significant threat of climate change, which presents even greater risk and longer-term impact on food and water security, labour and therefore supply chains. Decarbonising the supply chain is key to achieving individual and collective net-zero goals, the programme will look at strategy implementation and measurements that will drive efficiencies and accelerate the adoption of efficient carbon solutions.

Rethinking Supply Chains will address the main risks posed by brands, retailers, distributors, and procurement teams – sharing best practice, assessing the latest tech trends and presenting expert insight and inspiration on how to maximise transparency beyond tier-1, establish and maintain value-based supplier relationships and minimise exposure.
