Sustainability is a narrative that transcends specific markets, regions and industries. It is a truly global movement that is driven by the ever increasing importance of corporate social responsibility, demand for transparent business structures, and the deeply concerning questions around food and water security and carbon footprint, resulting in unprecedented emphasis being placed on companies to address these core issues. In this podcast we will discuss what this means for manufacturers and the many available routes to sustainability (both in terms of environmental conservation and ensuring an ethical supply chain). Passport: Ethical Labels data will be used to provide a global snapshot of the growing role of sustainable and responsible sourcing as well as a more focused insight into what this means in the Australian market and the role that Fairtrade has played as a catalyst to this ethical revolution.
