Operations advisory

If there is one certainty about supply chains and sourcing functions across all sectors it is that they will be disrupted, whether through logistical, geopolitical, environmental, or new, unforeseen challenges. This means there is nothing more important than embracing new capabilities to be agile and resilient, efficient, and cost effective. Increasingly, supply chain and sourcing leaders must also stand up to intense Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) scrutiny from regulators and stakeholders, adding to their robust program of work.

At KPMG, our operations professionals draw on deep sector insights, technological innovations, tailored methodologies, risk expertise, and cutting-edge sustainability measures to help you create supply chains and sourcing functions for this dynamic environment.
