Podcast | Understanding ESG Traceability in the Supply Chain – with Doug Johnson-Poensgen and Debjani Mallick

A fast-growing ESG topic in boardrooms and C-suites is ESG traceability – achieving transparency into the complete supply chain of goods and services. Organizations – and more importantly, their customers and clients – are seeking more transparent, secure and responsible supply chains. This is about far more than one supplier or manufacturer meeting the organization’s ESG standards. It’s about understanding the origin and path of all goods and materials across increasingly complex and global supply chains.

This episode of Board Perspectives features our conversation with Doug Johnson-Poensgen and Debjani Mallick about ESG traceability. They share their guidance for directors and C-suite leaders on how to navigate this often-complex challenge.

Doug is founder and CEO of Circulor, which provides a leading solution to industrial, complex supply chain traceability based on AI and Blockchain technology. Doug has 25 years of international experience as an Executive and Non Executive Director, operating in the Financial Services, IT and Management Consultancy sectors.

Debjani is a Senior Manager within the ESG and Supply Chain practice areas of Protiviti's Business Performance Improvement practice. Her primary focus is to develop the firm’s Sustainable Operations business solution. Debjani has 10 years of engineering and business experience helping organizations to meet their operational and sustainability goals.
