Interest and pressure to prove sustainability and reduce fraud are increasing around the world. Promoting sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems and ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns are among the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Likewise, for many organizations, large and small, sustainability—from the point of origin throughout the supply chain, all the way to the end consumer—is increasingly a priority.
The opportunity to address challenges of provenance, authenticity and traceability and to provide small producers with a more equitable seat at the fair-trade-table is now more real with new innovative technologies like blockchain.
The benefit is a circular supply chain that goes beyond where it started and creates a closer connection between consumers and small growers. By aligning incentives, we can empower an inclusive economy that encourages the actions that continue to mitigate environmental impact. Accenture has developed this capability but it’s just a start. We invite you to join us as we collaborate to build a more sustainable and inclusive world.
