Join BSR for a half-day convening to learn how embedding environmental, labor, and human rights considerations into supply chain finance mechanisms can help achieve business and sustainability goals by rewarding and incentivizing sustainable behaviors in global supply chains. Sustainable supply chain finance offers benefits to suppliers, global buyers, and finance providers and has the potential to transform supply chains.

The event will bring together global buyers, trade finance providers, and other relevant actors to demystify supply chain finance mechanisms, explore sustainable supply chain finance solutions, and catalyze action.
