Themes explored in this section:
- Why is it important to broaden the scope of sustainability reporting to include more holistic measures of environmental and social impact beyond solely carbon?
- What are some of the distinctions between a B-Corpation and a Benefit Corporation and how might they drive transparency in an organization?
- How might the private sector, non-profits, and regulatory bodies work together going forward to most effectively accelerate transparent supply chains in the food supply system?
The pursuit of profit at all costs and organization size should not be an excuse for poor traceability and transparency or ethics.
