Sustainability is one of the most critical issues currently in the world. More and more consumers are now concerned about making ethical decisions when it comes to consuming products. That is why it is vital for them to know what they buy and who they buy it from. We need more transparent supply chains to support this increasing demand for sustainable practices and products.
A transparent supply chain sheds important light on how and where these products are produced and shipped worldwide. This information empowers consumers with the much-needed knowledge to make ethical decisions and follow a more sustainable way of living.
Global supply chains are going through a transformational period to deal with the disruptions caused by the pandemic. Many companies worldwide have integrated technology solutions into their supply chains to increase information sharing to deal with this issue. This fact not only can deal with some of the supply chain challenges but also serves as a unique opportunity to make supply chains more sustainable.
Markus Mutz, the CEO of OpenSC and a supply chain innovator, had an interesting TED Talk back in 2020 on how transparent supply chains can save our planet.
