Climate Smart Futures: Why do we need to double down on resilient supply chain solutions?

Laura Beresford July 12, 2022

The resilience of supply chains will be a critical factor in the health of economies and communities over the coming decades. Global trends in corporate investment, consumer behavior, and capital markets are showing early positive signs of converging to power and incentivise this transition. As investors, we need to catalyze solutions that give agency and dignity to small merchants, farmers and workers at origin to build their businesses, manage climate disruption, and equitably access markets. This will be both hugely impactful and a major commercial opportunity for all value chain participants and we anticipate near-term demand among businesses, particularly resource-strapped MSMEs, for more resilient and reliable supply chains that can withstand climate-related shocks.
