We are pleased to invite you to join our 2021 online conference Unleash Opportunity kick-off on Wednesday, 2 June.

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been significant for business, people, the planet and society as a whole. Some of the most critical vulnerabilities of today’s global supply chains have been exposed and exacerbated. There is no “back to business as usual”.

Businesses are facing the need for change in the way they work and approach innovation. Furthermore, governments, investors, and consumers are demanding for companies to reinvent themselves.

These unprecedented times coincide with growing calls for a more value-based trade and explains a series of new policy requirements that could offer the opportunities to re-build sustainable and resilient supply chains.
