Win, Win, Win: The Sustainable Supply Chain Finance Opportunity

November 7, 2018, 4:00 pm-5:00 pm

There’s a new mechanism in town to drive sustainability in your supply chain: activating ESG supply chain finance programs. We will showcase specific examples of successful programs and the impacts they have achieved in this panel. Find out how these programs work, what the critical success factors are that make them work; and how new technologies, including blockchain, are making these programs easier to implement and more desirable. The session will conclude with an exploration into innovative new opportunities to incentivize suppliers with better financing for sector-wide collaboration.
