Responsible Supply Chains Conference
April 30, 2014
Stanford University - Stanford, CA
Presented by the Forum in partnership with the Stanford Center for Social Innovation, this one-day conference brings together corporate executives, nonprofit leaders, policymakers, and academics to discuss proactive approaches to promoting social progress, environmental sustainability and ethical integrity.
Supply chain managers are often forced to work in a reactive mode, addressing problems after they have occurred. We will explore how designing products, processes and supply chains with social, environmental and ethical responsibility in mind can minimize risk and improve performance. You will connect with people beyond your network and go home with design strategies that contribute to a better world.
What We Will Explore
- How supply chains can be designed to manage risk, lower costs, and promote social and environmental responsibility.
