The app that’s naming and shaming China’s polluters

The app that’s naming and shaming China’s polluters | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Factories caught cheating face repercussions. Ma’s non-profit organisation has caused some to be banished from Apple’s supplier list, be denied a desired credit rating to issue bonds or even be deprived of bank loans. For Ma, that is more effective than starting protests or lobbying local governments, which tend to raise the ire of the authorities in China.

Are Your Favorite Jeans Part of the Climate Problem?

Are Your Favorite Jeans Part of the Climate Problem? | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Sadly, instead of increased transparency and commitments, fashion CEOs are hiding behind greenwashed PR campaigns, like the disappointing announcement made by Levi’s, Gap, Guess, Wrangler, and Lee at a New York climate week event this past autumn. CEOs of the world’s famous denim brands said they would announce climate targets in two years, a deadline far longer than necessary to complete a basic step. While these CEOs continue to delay the climate commitment process, denim supply chains are continuing to pump carbon dioxide into the atmosphere without recourse.

The food industry in 2018 - bolder aims, broader horizons for sustainability

The food industry in 2018 - bolder aims, broader horizons for sustainability | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
So far, the food waste debate has centred on wastefulness in food industry supply chains. While efforts to tackle food loss in the supply chain will continue in 2018, the increased onus being placed on clearer labelling could be pivotal. The "call to action" to establish standardised food date labelling by 2020, announced by the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) and Champions 12.3 in September, is an important step forward. Further initiatives on food waste at a collective and company level are certain to follow during 2018.

‘Companies no longer have an excuse to ignore human rights in their supply chains’ 

‘Companies no longer have an excuse to ignore human rights in their supply chains’  | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
At the end of the 20th century, Nike has been probably the best-known example of previous bad practice in this arena.  In 1995 it initially reacted to human rights abuses taking place in its supply chain by denying it should take responsibility. This response backfired. Later on, realising that customers didn’t want to buy products made by children, Nike began its process of improvement.

The secret to a successful holiday shopping season: the supply chain

The secret to a successful holiday shopping season: the supply chain | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Supply chain solutions are becoming increasingly complex and are overflowing with different formats of data, unimaginable amounts of data. Just think about it. Every product, invoice, bill of lading, and piece of data associated with a transaction or shipment from the company or one of its hundreds or thousands of suppliers and partners is part of the supply chain. And every single one of them has ability to interrupt the supply chain, not to mention uncontrollable factors like a flat tire on the delivery truck or a snow storm near a distribution facility.

Can Technology Get Slavery Out of Food Supply Chains?

Can Technology Get Slavery Out of Food Supply Chains? | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it

The Global Slavery Index puts the worldwide number of people in “some form of modern slavery” at 45.8 million.
Modern food supply chains are complex and opaque and what transparency exists is largely focused on sustainability and environmental concerns. What’s more, a recent report by the Sustainability Consortium showed that even what large food and agriculture companies know and report about the sustainability of their supply chains is more a theoretical assessment of sustainability metrics, rather than a reflection of the actual agricultural practices used.

Building long-term sustainability in a corporate supply chain involves taking into account an incredibly long and complex set of standards and issues. And often the social responsibility side of the sustainability equation is the most difficult to manage. In the areas of the world where sustainability problems are most likely to fester, workforce protections may be sparse, enforcement may be minimal, and workers may be desperate for income even if puts themselves at risk.

Ten years ago, some of the biggest names in the consumer electronics industry — Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Samsung, Apple and others — made ambitious public pledges to phase out the worst hazardous substances from all products.
