ABOUT THIS EVENT
A recent CBRE worldwide survey revealed that:
- Focus on ESG intensified in 2022 mostly due to higher energy prices and government-imposed ESG disclosure requirements
- Reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions are the top ESG considerations
- Proximity to public transit and easier commutes are associated with better employee well-being.
Join a panel of ESG experts to delve into what ESG means from supply chain point of view and how it affects supply chain design and management, such as warehouse construction, DC operation, freight transport, procurement, people well-being… We will also look at some emerging trend, best practices, and legislative requirements to help you prepare for the future ESG management in supply chain.
