Assistant Professor Rachael Garrett and her colleagues have published their latest research in World Development. In “Transparency and sustainability in global commodity supply chains,” the team “present a typology to distinguish among types of supply chain information that are needed to support improvements in sustainability governance, and illustrate a number of major shortfalls and systematic biases in existing information systems. We also propose a set of ten propositions that, taken together, serve to expose some of the potential pitfalls and undesirable outcomes that may result from (inevitably) limited or poorly designed transparency systems, while offering guidance on some of the ways in which greater transparency can make a more effective, lasting and positive contribution to sustainability.”
