CARLSBAD, Calif., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jess Kraus, CEO of Source Intelligence, considered a leading expert on environmental and sustainability data management, will provide international sustainability executives and managers with the latest insights and trends about one of the biggest challenges facing companies today: The quest to increasing supply chain transparency.
Kraus will be among the prominent featured speakers at the Sustainable Brands conference in San Diego. Kraus is part of a panel on Wednesday, June 8, that will track the evolution of new tools to help brands reach new levels of visibility with their global supply chains.
"Companies large and small are increasingly being put under the microscope about whether their products or services are free of negative environmental and human rights issues," Kraus said. "The goal for companies today, therefore, is to have the tools and resources that allow them to state with confidence that they are using suppliers who meet their sustainability and ethical practice standards."
Source Intelligence and Kraus are considered prime indicators of how supply chain transparency has emerged as a critical issue for brands around the world. In less than five years since forming Source Intelligence, Kraus' company has quickly risen to become the international leader for supply chain management solutions serving many of the world's best-known and largest companies.
Source Intelligence is able to monitor on a real-time basis hundreds of thousands of international supply chains to identify the source and manufacturing routes of materials used in everyday products – from shoes and clothes, to mobile phones and television sets, to automobiles, to pharmaceuticals, to industrial products, to games and other electronics and more.
