Financing Sustainable Supply Chains

How to leverage development finance institutions to meet corporate sustainability and business goals

A new approach to sustainable supply chain management.

Today, business leaders must navigate issues like climate change, water scarcity, declining agricultural productivity, deforestation, unfair labor practices, and much more as they seek a high-quality and consistent commodity supply.

Sustainability and supply chain teams working in frontier and emerging markets can unlock new funding opportunities to address these issues by forming cross-sector partnerships with development finance institutions (DFIs). When a DFI invests in a project, it can help a company in multiple ways, such as:

  • Building brand loyalty between suppliers and consumer-facing companies.
  • Improving the product quality.
  • Ensuring a sustainable product quantity.
  • Incentivizing sustainable practices to meet a company’s ambitious sustainability targets.
  • Achieving important company business objectives, like increased revenue, decreased costs, improved consumer brand identity, and reduced risk to the supply chain.

Resonance spoke with several prominent DFIs to inform:

  • What types of projects they support.
  • What the engagement process looks like.
  • How to structure a successful partnership.
