November 2022 – ‘Sustainable Supply Chain Management: Between Responsibility and Opportunity for Business’ is the title of the Position Paper of the UN Global Compact Network Italy that will be launched at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) being held in Sharm el-Sheikh on Thursday 17 November from 9.30 a.m. to 11.00 a.m. (Italian time) within the Climate Ambition Hub (UNGC Pavilion – Green Zone).
The paper was developed by the Network with the active contribution of more than 30 member companies of the UNGC initiative, which are particularly sensitive and committed to the topic. The focus of the paper is the private sector’s commitment to managing supply chains in a sustainable way – identifying related challenges and opportunities – with vertical insights on the topics of Scope 3 emissions reduction; promotion and protection of human rights and decent work; and management of negative externalities through circular solutions.
