ARCHIVED: In-depth View of Suppliers in Emerging Asian Markets

Sponsored By Aravo

China remains the largest and fastest-growing economy in Asia, and developments in China have significant ripple effects throughout Western supply chains that depend on it as a critical source of supply. As sustainability becomes an increasingly important issue for China and its manufacturers, companies that rely on a China-based supply chain face new risks and opportunities. In this podcast, we talk with Chris Hazen, Director (Asia-Pacific) at WSP Environment & Energy, a leading global business advisor in the practices of sustainability, compliance assurance, and regulatory analysis covering climate change, supply chain management, product strategy and market entry, and performance metrics and reporting. Based in Hong Kong, Hazen shares his perspective on the impact that sustainability is having in China and on Asia-centric supply chains, and he explains how companies can minimize their own risks while continuing to build relationships with their suppliers in China.
