In Focus: SOURCING at MAGIC February 2022
PIONEERS OF SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainability was a major focus at this season's SOURCING at MAGIC event in Las Vegas. Here we highlight expert insights as well as sustainable exhibitors from the February edition. And stayed tuned for more post-event editorial from SOURCING at MAGIC coming soon.
SOURCING at MAGIC is busting their corozo buttons with pride at hosting some of the industry’s sustainability pioneers at this season’s event. We’ve been pleased to welcome brands that focus on everything from using renewable materials, to incorporating social good into their Human Resources practices, to running more efficient factories and facilities.
“As the leading event for sourcing professionals, we recognized that we not only needed to be sure that exhibitors that embraced sustainability were prominently featured,” says Andreu David, Vice President of SOURCING at MAGIC, “but that we would also provide guidance to our guests who are still trying to determine exactly what sustainability means to them. We are very pleased to continue our partnership with Hey Social Good, to help further guide and shape that dialogue.”
The path to sustainability is long, with unexpected twists and turns. Although there are many companies and agencies that offer guidance and validation, few can offer a comprehensive look at the range of practices available. To that end, SOURCING has partnered with the team at Hey Social Good to provide both validation and education.
“One of the easiest places to address the problem of sustainability is in the supply chain,” says Dr. Cindy Lin, CEO and Co-founder of Hey Social Good. “But we need to educate manufacturers about what’s important. How do we assess, verify, and guide businesses on their sustainability and social good practices? We are a social impact data analytics company, using data capture to create a framework around the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. We provide a ranking, recognizing that sustainability is a journey of many, many years.”
We caught up with just a few of these companies who are making a real difference for the future of our planet.
There's still time to check out these exhibitors and many more at SOURCING at MAGIC Online now through April 1, 2022.
