What technology is out there to help companies identify and manage risks in the supply chain? Kiku Loomis from the Rainforest Alliance and Alexander Ellebrecht from ChainPoint will dive deeper into this subject at the upcoming Responsible Business Summit in New York on 27 and 28 March. The session will cover a series of case studies using technology for measuring environmental impact, creating supply chain transparency and preventing human rights infringements.
The Rainforest Alliance
The Rainforest Alliance’s mission is to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behaviour. Kiku Loomis is Director, Claims, Traceability, and Trademarks at the Rainforest Alliance and can leverage over 15 years of experience in sustainable business and corporate social responsibility.
The Rainforest Alliance uses ChainPoint technology to collect important supply chain data in many specific supply chains, including cocoa and bananas. Data is collected from the start of the supply chain, all the way until finished label goods and is stored in the ChainPoint database. This enables the Rainforest Alliance to analyse data, manage processes more efficiently and bring visibility and traceability to global commodity supply chains.
How to create responsible businesses
The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land use practices, business practices and consumer behaviour. Consumers can look for the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal on many products they buy, with ingredients being sourced from farms and forests that meet rigorous standards and use sustainable production methods. Businesses can provide those products by leveraging the Rainforest Alliance’s sourcing assistance and certification services.
