ESG Reporting: Using Data Compilation and Analysis to Drive Supply Chain Policies

ESG Reporting: Using Data Compilation and Analysis to Drive Supply Chain Policies

From the GSC Team: 

The GSC has kicked off the fall season with a new video series exploring recent research evaluating the role of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) evaluation, the resources available for successful ESG practices, the major ESG rating agencies and how these insights can be translated into effective ESG supply chain policies and practices. We have summarized our first two conversations and attached their full video presentations.  Keep checking in with GSC as the series will culminate in a joint discussion with the same speakers regarding how data can inform policy & drive action, improving how the global supply chain impacts the financial market, the environment, and all of our lives on daily basis.
