Bridging the Gap: Reimagining Supply Chain Finance with Sustainability

Day 2 : 12:15 – 13:05

Supply chains are critical aspects of every business, and major contributors to environmental degradation and social inequality. There is a big disconnect between supply chain finance and sustainability, as many value chain processes are driven by the goal to maximize profits. Scope 3 emissions are often overlooked due to its indirectness to the business and lack of measuring parameters available. By integrating sustainable practices into supply chain finance, companies can support their sustainability goals, reduce risks, and build resilience across their supply chains.

In this panel, experts will discuss the future of sustainable supply chain finance, including emerging trends and opportunities for further innovations. The importance of stakeholder engagement and collaboration in promoting sustainable supply chain finance will be explored as well.


  • What are the emerging trends and opportunities for sustainable supply chain finance innovations?
  • How can organizations integrate sustainability considerations into their supply chain finance strategies to reduce risks and build resilience?
  • What role do stakeholders, including suppliers, customers, investors, and NGOs, play in promoting sustainable supply chain finance?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities associated with measuring and reporting on sustainability performance in supply chain finance?
  • How can companies balance sustainability and profitability for their supply chain operation?
