Sustainability strategies and programs, like social audits rolled out for the last couple of decades, have driven significant improvements. These efforts nevertheless fall short of activating the transformative changes necessary to build effective resilience throughout the value chain and complete the 2030 Global Agenda. In concrete terms, decent work or living conditions improvements, like climate action and transitioning to circularity are coming along all too slowly.
