Value Chain Development
Every organisation needs to know that its sourcing strategies are not contributing to environmental and social problems. Yet excluding upstream communities, perceived to be associated with such issues, can compound risks for the most vulnerable, while engaging them may instead reveal significant business opportunities. Balancing the two requires a rare skillset.
