Have you ever thought about what goes into the delivery and creation of that conference swag or those items you purchased during boxing week and how it can be developed sustainably? At the next GTEx Forum, you’ll learn about how corporate social responsibility or CSR can be taken to a whole new level. From product sourcing trends and developing advanced materials to using information and analytics to drive business decisions, the supply chain is more intricate than ever before.
