WEBINAR: Solutions for Resilient Raw Materials Supply

Session recorded on October 26th, 2021

Last March, Ksapa organized a demo of our Scale Up Training, Traceability and Impact (SUTTI) flagship initiative. We indeed package capacity-building, impact measurement and procurement mapping to bolster the productivity, livelihoods and resilience of smallholders. It also affects the sustainable transition and traceability of supply chains across Asia and Africa. But what about sourcing raw materials, often as sensitive as they are strategic? Socio-environmental and Human Rights issues linked to key procurement categories are usually well identified by businesses, yet they still end up clinching supply flows, generating costs linked to delays, lack of quality or customer dissatisfaction.

In this webinar, Ksapa will be in discussion with an OECD expert sharing concrete initiatives bringing at scale programs building more resilient sensitive raw material supply chains. Among other examples, Ksapa will share its work developing the  first natural rubber project that encompasses the entirety of the supply chain: smallholder farmers and partners, a natural rubber processing company, a tire maker and a car maker working with Porsche and Michelin.
Meet our invited experts: 
  • Shivani Kannabhiran, Lead Responsible Agricultural Supply Chains at the OECD
  • Hélène Vermont, Sustainable Purchasing Manager at Michelin
  • Farid Baddache, Ksapa’s CEO & expert on supply chain risk mitigation solutions,
That way, we’ll outline actionable solutions to build more resilient sensitive raw materials supply chains.
