Accelerating digital transformation with ESG compliance initiatives

Supply chain management market awareness has never been better or less well known. Global geopolitical and macroeconomic ecosystem conditions, regulations and disruptions are challenging every aspect of the supply network complexity, from sourcing to last mile delivery and everything in between. Executives face operating model changes as they seek to manage the risks and opportunities that lie in the path to profitable sustainability.

New rules and regulations in the supply chain are introduced in pursuit of sustainability. The Financial Stability Board’s (FSB) Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommends that organizations assess not only the potential direct impacts of climate change on their operations, but also the “potential second- and third-order impacts on their supply and… their distribution chains.”

Increasing sustainability and regulatory pressure

Sustainability in the supply chain is the management of the environmental, social and economic impacts of an organization’s operations and the promotion of good governance practices throughout the life cycle of goods and services.

The triple bottom line of people, planet and profit shown in Figure 1 focuses respectively on social justice, environmental justice and economic justice, collectively referred to as ESG. Organizations must strive to operate within the intersection of these 3Ps in their quest for profitable, sustainable growth.
