Breakout Session

Land Rights as Supply Chains Move: Whose Paddy Is Your Factory Built On?

Thursday November 3, 4:15 pm-5:15 pm

Supply chains are moving. Manufacturing is exiting China and climate change is forcing shifts in agriculture, as previously fertile lands suffer drought and extreme weather makes farming impossible. This kind of movement creates opportunity, but also risks. Land rights—rarely understood or reviewed by supply chain assessments—will become increasingly important. In the future, supply chain practitioners will need to consider different aspects of land rights, including local legal practices, graft and corruption, the local right to operate, and how challenges like violent protest and security can erupt unexpectedly. Join BSR and corporate leaders to learn about best practices, resources, and how to address these issues if they start to affect your business.
