Using Technology to Monitor and Improve Supply Chains: Lessons from the Field

  • Sessions and speakers are subject to change.
  • Sharing is caring
Thursday November 14, 10:15 am-11:15 am
Location: Regency Ballroom I

Thanks to new technology, supply chain management is going digital. Technological advances are changing how products and services are made and delivered and enabling the creation and sharing of supply chain information in new ways. This has extended to the growing ability to monitor and manage sustainability impacts in supply chains. This panel will explore how digital tools actually work in practice to gain traceability and visibility and better manage those impacts: How are brands using technology to mitigate climate risk in supply chains? How does forest satellite monitoring really work? We will also debate whether using technology is always better—what are its limitations, and how can we use these new tools to benefit those in the supply chain, such as smallholders, who are most in need?
