Pablo Salas explains how transparent supply chains can play a key part in helping us understand the impact we have on the environment.

Pablo Salas explains how transparent supply chains play a key part in helping us understand the impact we have on the world around us, revealing how products are resourced and whether they are contributing to the climate and biodiversity crisis - or helping to address it.
