John Manners-Bell

Join Kogan Page publishers and John Galt Solutions as we present John Manners-Bell, Chair of the Logistics and Supply Chain Global Agenda Council of the World Economic Forum and 25 year veteran of transport and logistics.

During this event Manners-Bell outlines the 'triple advantage' of dealing with current ethical and environmental problems in the supply chain, including:

  • Benefits to corporate profitability
  • Mitigation of societal impacts
  • Mitigation of environmental impacts

This webcast further addresses the challenges faced by manufacturers and retailers in ensuring that, ‘cradle to grave,’ their supply chains meet an acceptable standard from an environmental and ethical perspective. Firstly in upstream supply chains, in particular related to the extraction and processing of raw materials. Secondly, in the downstream manufacturing and assembly of components. Each of these elements has related impacts on the environment and upon society. The best supply chains will mitigate these impacts and even use them to create more value for their shareholders.

Manners-Bell also looks at the extent of the problems; attempts by governments to address some of the issues (including ‘Modern Slavery’) and how the best performing companies are dealing with the issue.
