Supply Chain Traceability: Better Data, Lower Risk​

Register now!


In 2019, leading banks and the United Nations launched the Principles for Responsible Banking, with 130 banks collectively holding $47 trillion in assets, or one third of the global banking sector, signing up.

In line with these Principles, banks committed to strategically align their business with the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Goals, and bolster their contribution to the achievement of both endeavours.

However, this huge volume of capital is trickling from behind a dam created by uncertainty from lack of data, taxonomies, schemas, reporting and products, robust enough to satisfy the risk register of financial institutions. The result is a lack of confidence about viable options for investing in sustainable initiatives.

Supply chain traceability – yielding dynamic, trustworthy, and secure data from complex supply chains – is required for investors to deliver on the promise of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG).

Finextra Research and ResponsibleRisk will be running a thought-provoking series of editorial, research and experiential events to bring banking and technology ecosystems together, to collaborate on enabling this wave of change.

State of the supply chain

Supply chains are a conveyor belt – converting nature into goods. But do we know the provenance of all the materials involved, and their impact on people and the planet? If the planet was a balance sheet, we are in a loss – exploiting 1.6 times more Earths than we have. There is $44 trillion associated with nature at risk.

01 Dec 2021 11.30 - 11.45 GMT

Case study: Waste management and data

Tracking and tracing solid waste data is the dirty, hard end of the supply chain. We explore how to solve this problem using asynchronous data and aggregation techniques.

Workshop 3 - ​The digital twin of physical assets focus

The key is to develop an end-to-end ecosystem that brings security and trust to the intersection of distributed commerce and the trade ​of physical assets.
