Chocolate Passion Enjoyed by the Entire Value Chain

Chocolate is globally perceived as a scrumptious product and often reminds people of joyful moments. But the conditions under which the main ingredient of chocolate, cocoa, is produced are still less joyful. To help develop a sustainable cocoa supply chain, a consortium of 13 banks has renewed market leader Barry Callebaut’s banking credit facility, increasing it from EUR 600 million to EUR 750 million. Surprisingly, the interest rate will be coupled with the company’s sustainability performance and rating.
Peer partnerships for circular economy business models

Collaboration with Competition: Peer Partnerships for Society

Traditionally, value chain partnerships are set up between companies with complementary capabilities, resources, products and services. To increase the impact of their sustainability efforts, companies increasingly find that collaboration with competitors can be a useful approach. These partnerships typically lead to synergies for all parties involved, including an increased scalability of their sustainability efforts, cost savings and improved performance. In addition, peer partnerships can fuel new business models and, thus, new revenue streams.

Empowering Smallholder Farmers within the Value Chain

What do the Rana Plaza clothing factory disaster and the Chinese food safety scandal that, according to Reuters, caused a 4.2 percent share price decrease for Yum Brands have on common? They are two of the many examples of the costs and risks that companies can incur when a sustainable and integrated supply chain management is not in place. On the other hand, responsible management comes with many benefits, including greater access to capital and new markets, reducing the cost of material input, energy and transportation, and spurring innovation in order to meet evolving customer and business partner requirements. The business case is clear.
