InterPraxis Director delivers keynote lecture in Tokyo on building responsible supply chains.

Building responsible supply chains requires cooperation and collaboration with suppliers to ensure that they have critical sustainability/ responsibility strategies in place so that they can reduce sustainability risks and create ongoing improvements in their social and environmental performance. It is especially important to focus on high-risk suppliers, for example from industries that are known to face particular challenges, or from countries where national legislation and internationally recognised principles for human rights and labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption, are not fully respected. This is not always easy but as InterPraxis demonstrated developing a robust responsible supply chain management system will go a long way to help you achieve these goals.
