Decarbonisation and Responsible Sourcing in Value Chains

28th June

Decarbonisation and Responsible Sourcing in Value Chains

Companies can no longer ignore the impact of their activities on people and planet across all tiers of their supply chain. Corporations have growing legal and stakeholder demands to manage sustainability risks and opportunities not only in their operations, but in their value chain as well. The incoming Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) will mandate this. In terms of improving sustainability performance, the value chain is where the majority of a company’s carbon footprint typically occurs and it is often where the highest risk of exploitative labour practices lies. Engagement with suppliers can reduce these risks and unlock new business opportunities. Davy Horizons were recently joined by James Chamberlayne, Catriona Nicholson and Eric Mieras to provide key insights on their experiences of value chain decarbonisation and responsible sourcing.
