How is Covid-19 impacting sustainable supply chain and procurement initiatives?
Recent supply chain disruptions exposed vulnerabilities and critical problems of supply chains all over the world across which justice, fairness and inclusion are not ensured for all. Central banks have been giving money without any sustainable supply chain or procurement considerations with money being funnelled to companies with no strings attached, meaning capital for some of the most exploitative companies and industries in the world.
Hear how researchers in IPSERA are investigating the impacts of Covid 19 and other disasters on sustainable supply chain and procurement practices and whether or not sustainable supply chain and procurement initiatives can survive knee-jerk reactions from companies and governments in troubled times.
