Webinar: the power of transparency

By Alexander Ellebrecht | July 30, 2020

KPMG ChainPoint webinar 20aug20-1

KPMG and ChainPoint invite you to a 45 minute webinar in supply chain transparency aimed at (future) leaders. Hear how organizations use technology to secure transparency throughout their supply chain as a means to mitigate risk, reduce costs and inspire trust.

Explore how complex supply chains in the retail and consumer goods sector are tied together by ChainPoint’s technology and KPMG’s positional expertise. Join in the discussion with other supply chain and sustainability experts of retail and FMCG companies.

According to a new KPMG 2020 study, Covid-19 reshaped consumer psychology and impacted disposable income to make ‘value for money’, ‘ease of buying’ and ‘trust’ the top 3 consumer purchase drivers. Organizations need to rethink their operating model to match consumer changes in purchasing priorities.

During the webinar we will ask Lena Staafgard from Better Cotton Initiative to tell us how the company drives trust and value towards consumers through supply chain transparency. Join the morning and/or afternoon sessions on 27 August to learn about the power of transparency.

The speakers

Lena Staafgard, Chief Operating Officer at Better Cotton Initiative

Encouraging transparency in cotton supply chains and connecting the end-user with the cotton farm.

Lena Staafgard BCI

Many retailers and brands join BCI with a limited understanding of the journey cotton has gone through before reaching their stores. Through their BCI membership they are required to calculate their cotton usage, which is a first step towards a deeper understanding. BCI conferences and meetings also allow RBs (Retailers and Brands) and suppliers to meet in dialogue to better understand each other’s constraints and opportunities. The benefits of transparency include gaining a better understanding of the ins and outs of a global commodity chain, enabling better and more informed risk management.

The BCI system even retraces the RBs to farm level through the VBF model, further enhancing the understanding of how it is all linked together.
