How can technology solve packaging compliance, sustainability and ethical trade challenges?

Following on from the series of Sustainable & Ethical Procurement Round tables held around the country for ASCI members in June 2019, this two hour briefing drills down deeply into one of the common challenges which was identified across the supply chain community.

Sustainability and ethical trade are increasingly business critical topics for any board room and are now directly impacting consumer buying behaviour. Today consumers are encouraging brands to be more vocal about sharing information and being transparent. Implementing sustainability and ethical trade best practice requires collaboration across the supply chain and implementation of technology.

To begin, let's first look at what we can improve. There are an extraordinary amount of packaging inefficiencies that exist throughout the supply chain. And yet, consistency in packaging can result in meeting sustainable and ethical standards and enable cost saving optimisation of pallets, containers and warehouse space.

To meet your ethical standards you need to build a trusted supplier and factory network. Ethical Trade allows retailers to record factory audit results and manage the resolution of corrective action plans (CAP’s). Companies need a single database to record all the audit information, factory profiles, certification, audit reports, next audit dates, risk rating all in one place, preferably shared with their suppliers and factories.

Have we ticked all the boxes?

By end of this session, James Hargraves from Adjuno will ensure you have ticked all the boxes to understand how to implement efficient, ethical and sustainable solutions.

This is a must-attend event to help you understand how technology can optimise, improve and drive greater compliance with packaging, sustainability and ethical trade throughout the supply chain.

Lastly, how do we establish our internal planning and self assessments for the first reporting year of the Modern Slavery Act? We'll hear from the Supply Chain Sustainability School within our Q&A session.
