The Scale of the Net Zero Challenge

The price of meeting net zero is estimated to be between $100-150 trillion over the next 30 years. Regardless of this cost, we need to reach net zero before climate change does irreversible damage to the environment and the economy.

ESG, Sustainability and Impact Jargon Buster

ESG, sustainability, impact… they all just mean green, right? Not quite. Despite being used often interchangeably, there are distinct differences between these terms.

The Challenges for Supply Chains

Kate Larsen

20 years: Human Rights and Supply Chains

Now we’re familiar with what a supply chain is and where ESG fits into it, Kate Larsen guides us through the problems we have with supply chains - pollution, deforestation, child labour, slavery, wage abuse and even death. From budget brands to high end luxury - these aren’t problems on far away shores. In fact, many of these are closer to home than you think.

The Challenges for Supply Chains

17 mins 31 secs

Overview

In recent years we've seen a flurry of new laws which call on companies to conduct due diligence on supply chains, with particular focus on environmental and social factors (such as human rights and labour standards). Some of the most vulnerable workers in developing countries have been targeted by bad actors. This has left them in debt bondage i.e. modern slavery. Western Buyers are increasingly held to account to do human rights due diligence to help people in their supply chains have their Environmental Social rights respected. There are 17 SDGs, but the first is no poverty.

Studies show that the majority of workers making clothing and shoes globally for western brands aren't paid a living wage. Many need to work 80 hours a week in physical work to pay for often still slum-like living conditions.

Key learning objectives:

  • Identify the causes of supply chain abuse

  • Identify examples of supply chain abuse

  • Understand the consequences of supply chain abuse
