For businesses who fail to take care over working conditions, the provenance of the products they supply or the way they are manufactured, supply chains represent a significant risk to the sustainability of their business as consumers become less tolerant of shortcomings in these areas.

However, organisations that are trying to improve their performance in these areas are finding that these efforts are handing them competitive advantage as their supply chains become more resilient and consumers give them more business.

As the scrutiny and pressure on supply chains increases we have written a report – New Shocks Better Solutions: Beating disruption with stronger, more responsible supply chains – which identifies the main potential supply chain shocks and identifies how these challenges can be turned into opportunities for business which you can download here.
