Panel Discussion - "Industry Perspectives on Sustainability across the Supply Chain: Challenges and Opportunities - This session, featuring a panel discussion by industry representatives, is motivated by the recognition that sustainability will be improved only if industry takes a leading role in the development of better practices and innovative technologies. It will help materials researchers better understand the sustainability-oriented considerations and constraints of industry as well as identify critical areas of concern to industry that could benefit from innovative research. The panelists will discuss sustainable supply chains, including how companies consider factors like resource availability, environmental and human health risks, other life cycle impacts, financial considerations, and regulation. In this context, the panelists will also identify key areas of opportunity for materials research to help mitigate supply chain risks and create more sustainable product life cycles.
