This session will discuss why it is critical for organizations to collect and manage ESG data at the product-level in order to gain improved clarity on performance across the extended value chain and provide critical points of differentiation for B2B and B2C products

•    Corporations are under increasing pressure – from investors, advocacy groups, stakeholders, and employees – to enhance performance across various ESG dimensions, as there is heightened social, governmental, and consumer attention on the broader impact of corporations.
•    To meet these rising expectations, organizations have naturally focused a lot of their attention on their extended value chains, as they rely on thousands of third-party suppliers for services, raw materials, parts, and components.
•    Unfortunately, ESG data management activities have mostly been focused at the supplier (parent) level, which hinders an organization’s visibility into ESG-related opportunities and risks.
•    Additionally, B2C consumers and increasingly B2B customers are demanding enhanced transparency and traceability for the products and services that they are purchasing.
•    Therefore, we believe that organizations should move towards a product-level approach for ESG-related supply chain due diligence, which will provide critical visibility into ESG performance and enable product-level ESG trading cards for increased differentiation in the market

Roger Milley Bunmi Adeyinka
4:30 PM

•    Importance of high-quality ESG data – companies being measured by financial stakeholders; better decision-making; supporting the narrative for disclosure
•    Metrics and Materiality – There are several reporting frameworks that companies report to, each with their own set of metrics; materiality helps take a deep look inward to help determine what ESG issues matter most
•    ESG Data Collection – Tremendous effort goes into data collection and reconciliation from various sources; supply chain and other Scope 3 is even tougher
•    Validation and Assurance – Data collection processes sometimes don’t have an audit trail, so third-party assurance may be required to avoid scrutiny
