How can greater gender equality help companies address key supply chain climate risks?

10 Nov 2022
Climate Action Stage
Week 1

Climate change poses significant risks for companies' supply chains, from direct short-term impacts like crop failures and extreme weather to longer-term, knock-on effects like labour migration and even stranded assets. How might integrating gender equality throughout supply chains help address these risks? And vice versa, how can climate initiatives improve gender outcomes? Drawing on lessons and examples primarily from agricultural supply chains, we'll explore key steps companies can take to integrate gender and climate in their supply chains to increase their gender equity and climate impacts and boost their supply chain resilience overall.
