Supply chains have a huge impact on the amount of carbon emitted by the construction industry. Chaired by EG, this session will cover a range of intersecting issues:
- What is driving the transformation of supply chains? Is it reducing carbon emissions, optimising resources or regulatory compliance?
- What are the benefits of investing in practices and technologies to improve the traceability of supply chains?
- Should cost savings be the only motivator for supply chains or should ROI measurements include intangible impacts and green outcomes?
- What other factors influence responsible finance and business resilience?
