Unlocking the potential of sustainable supply chains
30 August 2023 | 03:30 PM - 05:30 PM
Overview
The focus on sustainability and ESG (environmental, social and governance) has become a core strategy for corporates today. Facing pressure from regulators, shareholders and customers, many corporates have self-evaluated their impact on the wider community, particularly when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions.

While corporates generally have control over their Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, there is a critical need to address Scope 3 emissions reporting requirements. This involves indirect emissions that occur in the value chain of an organization. According to the World Economic Forum, supply chain emissions can be 5-10 times higher than direct emissions from companies.

In the mix of all of this are CFOs and treasurers who are looking to play a proactive role in not only improving the financial health of their respective companies but also their ESG initiatives. The utilization of supply chain finance in the past has offered CFOs and treasurers an opportunity to improve their working capital and strengthen supplier loyalty.

Now the service is being adjusted with a sustainability theme with financial incentives being put in place to encourage suppliers to adopt sustainable practices. While an exciting development, there are a number of challenges facing CFOs and treasurers looking to implement a sustainable supply chain finance programme including aligning with procurement and setting the right ESG framework to follow.

The Asset, in association with DBS, is pleased to be hosting an exclusive roundtable “Unlocking the potential of sustainable supply chains”. The panel of experts will share their experiences and challenges in crafting a sustainable and resilient supply chain.
