Shaping the Future of Sustainable Sourcing

In the best of circumstances, when companies purchase their raw materials from developing countries, the people living in those countries can reap enormous benefits – increasing their incomes, improving local services, growing their food security, and much more. However, when sourcing done by companies does not account for the local environmental and social needs, results can be catastrophic, both to local ecosystems and affected communities.

Protecting people and the environment, while also creating opportunities for sustainable economic growth, ensures shared prosperity for all people in developing countries, as well as long-term responsible stewardship of the planet.

Come join the conversation about sustainability in corporate supply chains, and reflect on how non-profits and for-profits together can lead the way to a more equitable, healthy and prosperous world.

This event is in partnership with Final Mile Logistics Seattle Working Group.

 Speakers:

  • Robin Barr, Global Director, TFT
  • Margaret Henry, Director, Sustainable Agriculture, PepsiCo
  • Ed Brooks, Advisor, Agriculture and Rural Markets, Mercy Corps
  • Moderator: James Bernard, Director, Resonance
