Free Webinar - Monitoring ESG risks in your supply chains

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) are a big deal for business. We discuss what's involved in monitoring them.

Two trends are dominating headlines: climate concern and supply chain shortages. 

Organisations and nation states are being required to proactively pursue green (and more broadly, ESG) objectives. This is no simple matter in a globalised economy made up of billions of interconnected supply chains. 

Questions abound.

What is my organisation’s slavery footprint? How do I find where slavery is occurring in my supply chain? Is my investment portfolio linked to carbon intensive technology? What are my organisation’s carbon emissions – upstream and downstream? Is my business causing deforestation?

Fundamental to assessing any of these risks are more foundational questions.

What is my supply chain? Who are my suppliers’ suppliers’ suppliers etc? Can I determine that efficiently and at scale given the complexity of my business?

Kimberly Randle of Fair Supply will be familiar to our clients as the presenter of a number of well-received webinars and workshops in the past. In this free webinar, she addresses these questions and suggests practical ways that businesses can respond to these challenges. 

There will be time for questions during the webinar, but we invite questions in advance to bill.tarrant@GRCSolutions.com.au

GRC Solutions once again partners with Fair Supply to make this occasional webinar available to our clients.
