Speaking about global supply chains at Economist Impact’s Sustainability Week

Join me at Economist Impact’s 9th annual Sustainability Week, where I will be speaking this week. The event will take place on March 4th-6th 2024, in London, UK and virtual. I will be on a panel to discuss “Scaling local solutions for global supply chains” on Tuesday March 5th 2024, 17:00 GMT.

The session will explore how organisations can work with local and indigenous communities to bring their knowledge of nature into play. These case studies will uncover the catalysts behind a transformative approach to working with nature and restoring biodiversity. How can local solutions be brought up to a global scale?

I will draw on Forum for the Future’s work on value chains, including:

7 shifts for responsible value chains

• Scaling regenerative agriculture and agroecology through Growing our Future and Protein Challenge Southeast Asia

• From conventional agricultural supply chains to Regenerative Value Networks

Cotton 2040 initiative 

Responsible recruitment in global supply chains 

• Learning from indigenous knowledge


I will be joined by moderator Oliver Sawbridge, manager, trade and geopolitics at Economist Impact and my fellow speakers:

• Duncan Macqueen, forests director, International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)

• Nicole Rycroft, founder and executive director, Canopy

• Emma Dennis, senior global impact manager, Better Cotton

• Sofía Condés, head of investor outreach, FAIRR Initiative
