‘Net Positive’ approach can help towards supply chain security
Taking a ‘Net Positive’ approach in business helps an organisation build a more secure supply chain, says a new report from Forum for the Future, The Climate Group and WWF-UK.
The report – Net Positive: A New Way of Doing Business – captures the principles of what it means to take a Net Positive approach and provides a route map to help businesses to engage with the concept. It calls for the ambition of business to change from ‘doing less harm’ to becoming ‘Net Positive’ to have a positive impact on the world.
According to the authors, the benefits of a Net Positive approach are already being felt by businesses, including BT, Capgemini, Coca-Cola Enterprises, The Crown Estate, IKEA Group, Kingfisher and SKF.
Leaders of these businesses came together with the report authors to share their experiences and help define the principles of a Net Positive approach. They concluded that failure to deal adequately with environmental and social issues results in exposure to supply chain risks and missed opportunities.
