2020 has underscored the importance of supply chain resiliency, but disruptions are an ongoing challenge. The rise of natural disasters and threat of climate change are growing factors in supply chain management and business operations. Customers, partners and investors are increasingly focused on sustainable and transparent sourcing as well as adaptable and efficient operations. For many, blockchain has become the path to building resilience and accountability into a supply chain. In this talk, Hyperledger’s Marta Piekarska-Geater will be joined by Doug Johnson-Poensgen of Circulor and Gigo Joseph of Chainyard as well as a blue chip customer using blockchain to address supply chain reliability and sustainability. They will discuss - The role of blockchain in managing vendors across complex supply chains and ensuring accountability and transparency - Climate change as a driver in supply chain planning and blockchain adoption - The added complexity of procurement in the face of disaster or disruption - Use cases from customers across a mix of industries, including automotive, CPG, electronics and pharma. A speaker from one (or two) of these companies will join the panel as well
