Abstract

The rapid globalization of supply chains exposes companies to myriad opportunities, but also heightened risks -- including increased exposure to corporate social responsibility ("CSR") risks from the supply base. This paper and the presentation will frame the challenges and opportunities of managing CSR risk in the extended supply chain, as well as explore elements of effective tactics based on demonstrated best-practices from leading global supply organizations.
