Co-Head, Global Supply Chain CoE, Asia Pacific
Working CSR into the supply chain
High-profile environmental and safety crises in recent years—including the factory collapse in Bangladesh, the deadly labor protests in Cambodia, and multiple global product recalls—have brought corporate social responsibility (CSR) into the spotlight for most international corporations.
This has significant implications for businesses’ supply chain—particularly in Asia Pacific—and for independent CSR leaders who are driving sustainability programs across the entire supply chain. To learn more about the demands being placed on these leaders, Korn Ferry spoke with top executives in global sourcing, quality, compliance, and sustainability management at leading organizations with a sizable investment and/or operations in Asia Pacific. It’s clear that this new generation of leaders will need not only specific technical skills, but distinct leadership attributes if they are to succeed in improving the sustainability of the global supply chain.
