Save the Date: GEMI Meeting on Supply Chain Sustainability
Please save the date of June 20-21 for the next GEMI meeting on Supply Chain Sustainability in Washington, DC. Registration will open soon – stay tuned.
One of the largest challenges corporate sustainability leaders grapple with today is a lack of common expectations for supply chain sustainability. Many are seeking ways to better understand the sustainability performance of companies within their supply chain while responding to similar requests from their own customers. While the objectives of such efforts are often similar, the format and content are typically quite different. A few industries have made strides in working together to develop common expectations and shared evaluation processes for their suppliers. There is strong potential to build on this work to enhance collective efforts and reduce the burden to both buyer and supplier across industries, and GEMI is actively exploring such opportunities through its Supply Chain Sustainability work.
On June 20-21, GEMI will meet in Washington, DC to explore industry approaches to supply chain sustainability and opportunities to drive alignment/mutual recognition while reducing fatigue for buyers and suppliers. GEMI will convene corporate leaders, industry associations, and 3rd party providers to examine drivers for supplier data collection, the principles that apply to supplier data collection efforts across industries, and opportunities to work together to advance common goals. We hope you will join us.
