INTRODUCTION

This course explores the topic of sustainability and supply chains. We will begin with an introduction to the principles of sustainability and understand the emergence of multilateral agreements which have supported the adoption of sustainable development commitments. We will introduce the concept of supply chains as processes that link raw materials from nature to end products that consumers can purchase. We will reflect on how businesses can account for the risks associated with being linked to negative environmental, social and governance impacts associated with their products. We will explore independent tools available to businesses to understand their supply chain impacts.
