"No More Excuses: Responsible Supply Chains in a Globalised World is both timely and extremely interesting. It is a report card on the engagement and commitment of multinational companies (and others in global supply chains) in the mega-challenge of aligning corporate goals and incentives with important economic, social and ethical standards and objectives. It is an honest and objective look, based on a vast amount of survey information across eight economies (China, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Korea and the US), each of which has a key role in global supply chains. It is designed to get at the perceptions of corporate leaders, their commitments and achievements to date. And it paints a clear picture of important areas where progress is lagging, or in a few cases, in reversal."
