Webinar: Managing natural capital risks in your supply chain

On 12th June 2013, Trucost hosted a webinar on the subject of ‘Measuring natural capital risk in your supply chain’. The webinar was run in conjunction with our friends at Sprint and Michigan State University.


Why measure natural capital risk in your supply chain?

Our research shows that, on average, 60% of natural capital risks are embedded within supply chains. Businesses that take steps to measure these risks – and partner with their suppliers to reduce them – can reap significant rewards. Last year, 73% of companies reporting supply chain impacts to the CDP achieved significant cost savings by reducing their impacts. Leading businesses are also using “hot spot” tools to get ahead of the trend towards natural capital costs being internalized through pricing, shortages and ultimately regulations.

This webinar focuses on why companies are using ‘hot spot’ analysis to identify environmental risks concealed within supply chains and product portfolios.

During the webinar Sprint and Michigan State University discuss their supply chain sustainability strategies and lessons learned from screening their supply chain to find the suppliers and products where there are the greatest opportunities to manage environmental risks.
