    Webinar: Supply Chain Management

    Date: April 30, 2014; 12:00 – 1:00 pm EST

    Registration: Available on Eventbrite.

    Host: GRI Focal Point USA & Canada and Bloomberg L.P.

    Description: Multinational supply chains now crisscross the globe. That’s why supply chain sustainability is increasingly at the forefront of decision-making by companies, investors, and consumers alike. In response to rising expectations in this area, companies must now address not just their own economic, environmental, and social impacts, but also the impacts of their suppliers.

    However, despite the relatively widespread activity related to supply chains, approaches to understanding and managing such impacts remain much less advanced – and driving transparency and accountability in the supply chain can be a challenge.

    This webinar will break-down these challenges, and explore best practice of companies streamlining sustainability into their supply chain and risk management strategies.

    Susanne Katus, External Relations & Communications Officer at GRI’s Focal Point USA & Canada, will illustrate the key changes in the supply chain disclosures of GRI’s latest version of the Sustainability Reporting Guidelines – G4.

    Mark Schwartz, Financial Analyst at Bloomberg L.P., will guide us through the SPLC function of the Bloomberg Terminal to demonstrate how Bloomberg captures and integrates this data into its analytics; and to illustrate real case scenarios in which supply chain activities impact a company’s overall performance.

    Outlining shareholder expectations for company disclosure, Mike Lombardo, Senior Sustainability Analyst and Manager at Calvert Investments, will discuss why sustainable supply chains make good business sense.

    Join the conversation by registering on Eventbrite. GRI Organizational Stakeholders and Sector Leaders receive complimentary registration.
