ESG Lead promises more ethical and sustainable food supply chain 

A new ESG organization will empower food businesses, helping them evaluate and improve their ESG impacts

Retailers, stakeholders, and consumers are demanding more transparency from businesses when it comes to ESG (environmental, social, and governance).

So, this month, data company Ecodesk has launched ESG Lead, a new tailor-made software tool for the food industry.

According to Ecodesk, the software will help companies boost ethical and sustainable impacts across their supply chains.

The venture is backed by industry giant BRCGS, the leading provider of global supply chain assurance programs. It will assess impacts, market positioning, and bottom-line financing to create individually tailored business profiles and units.

With curated action plans in place, businesses should be in good stead when it comes to uplevelling their credentials.

As compliance guidelines in ESG continue to evolve, staying abreast of new legislative and regulatory changes is crucial in the fast-paced food and beverage industry.

The new software will offer manufacturers the opportunity to reach future ESG targets years ahead of schedule, enabling them to become pioneers in their field.

Damien Smith, CEO of Ecodesk, commented: “Demonstrating responsible business practices across the food supply chain has become a must for retailers and consumers, which means transparency and resilience are more crucial than ever before.

“Until recently, harnessing environmental, social, and governance best practices has felt overwhelming and laborious, and as a result, it hasn’t been treated with the importance it deserves, something that ESG Lead will resolve.

“By evaluating and reporting your business’ current performance, you can be several steps ahead, bettering the business commercially, socially, and environmentally.

“We look forward to working with all who adopt ESG Lead on their journey to a more sustainable future.”
