Managing Investor Expectations & Risk: How to Establish a Responsible Supply Chain

  • Friday, 09/15/2017: 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM
  • Room: Hilton, Holiday Ballroom 2

Description

Join us as we unpack why there is growing pressure from current and potential investors on food, farming, and agriculture industries’ value chains to ramp up sustainability and responsible sourcing risk management. 

Through the lens of investment and corporate experts, as well as recent research findings, we will discuss why there is this increased demand among investors for food and agriculture companies to invest in sustainable supply chains. In addition, investors are also calling for increased attention to social and environmental supply chain risk. To help address this growing demand for sustainable and socially responsible supply chains, we will explore the steps that companies can take to become aware of, monitor and mitigate risk within their supply chain.
