Articles, posts and podcasts about sustainable supply chains, mostly


State of US CSR conference, June 28-29 New York

Readers, excuse the advert, but the blog is free so commercially-related messages are sometimes inevitable. This may also be of interest I hope.

If you are based in the US, and would like to meet some of the leading players in sustainable business, we’re bringing them together on June 28-29 to debate some of the most important topics.

• How to embed CSR in your organisation with a focus on getting buy in from employees that yields real behaviour change

• How to work with NGOs, industry associations and even competitors to enhance CSR and sustainability

• What Rio+20 meant for business: Significant announcements and trends will be analysed

• How to make progress towards a robust and ethically sourced supply in the wake of Dodd Frank Act and California Transparency in Supply Chains law.

• The business case in numbers for social investment and community outreach: The material benefit of social investment initiatives such as education investment in the local community

• How to start to engage consumers on sustainability and deliver real behaviour change

On June 28-29 in New York, We’ll be discussing all this with some of the leading figures in US responsible business, such as:
