ESG through the supply chain: Incentives that work on the ground
21 Apr 23
IF editorial team
In order to hit targets on sustainability issues such as emissions, waste and ethical work conditions, companies must work with suppliers to implement changes on the ground. Asking suppliers to shift behaviour and protocol can be challenging, and so incentives are often needed.
As part of the theme for Earth Day 2023 to “Invest in Our Planet”, this special webinar had panellists share the different types of incentives and approaches that encourage suppliers to implement sustainable changes in farms and factories. They gave proven examples of incentives that have worked, whilst discussing:
The potential challenges and pitfalls of communicating with supply chain workers around new sustainability initiatives
Best practice for approaching discussions with suppliers to drive progress in factories and farms
How to work with suppliers to build sustainable policies and initiatives that work for the business, the supplier, and workers on the ground
