Written by Ulula

March 16, 2021

On March 3, 2021, we convened a joint webinar on how organizations can take measurable steps towards eliminating social and environmental issues, such as deforestation and labor exploitation, for more transparent and ethical supply chains. 

This webinar brought together leaders in satellite monitoring, stakeholder engagement technology, and agribusiness trade in a discussion on how to establish robust ESG monitoring programs to deliver actionable insights. Nanne Tolsma from Satelligence, Vera Belazelkoska from Ulula and Catalina Roman from Cargill delved into the collection, integration and use of different sources of social and environmental data for better disclosure and to inform organizational strategy for more ethical and transparent supply chains. 

Key topics:

  • Innovative solutions that combine geospatial data with on the ground worker and community feedback to provide a holistic view of ESG risks across global supply chains, and how this can be applied in a variety of sectors
  • How to leverage geospatial and worker feedback data for sustainability reporting and disclosure, and develop corrective plans to address any detected issues 
  • The business case for investing in long-term ESG monitoring programs for continuous insights and how to champion these programs internally
