#Supply Chain


Join BSR for a frank discussion about the potential for new technologies, including blockchain, to address long-standing supply chain challenges and contribute to supply chains that are traceable, transparent, efficient, and equitable.

This webinar will go beyond the hype to describe—in plain language—how companies can leverage new technologies to meet their commercial and sustainability goals. Experts will share case studies where blockchain technology is already yielding positive benefits for companies, communities, and individuals connected to global supply chains.

Participants will leave with a clear understanding of blockchain’s potential, concrete examples of how it is being used today, and guidance on how to evaluate the utility of a blockchain solution to address social and environmental challenges in supply chains.

Speakers

  • Viktor Peter, Blockchain Governance Expert, GIZ Blockchain Lab
