The sustainable supply chain ambition: Driving sustainability impact through supply chain action

The UN Global Compact Network Australia and EY Australia undertook this research project to better understand how Australian businesses manage their supply chains to reduce negative impacts with regard to labour exploitation and environmental degradation, while also providing opportunities for social equity, environmental restoration and nature-positive outcomes. This study specifically examined how businesses can create genuine impact through their supply chain processes on biodiversity, climate change and human rights. This report has been prepared for Australian businesses and their broader stakeholders, including investors, the academic community and supply chain partners.
