Presentation of Sourcemap at the IDB
Leonardo Bonanni, PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and founder and CEO of Sourcemap, presented the online application on Wednesday, November 6 at the Inter-American Development Bank’s Washington D.C. location.
Sourcemap (sourcemap.com) is a supply chain transparency tool that visually relates geographic information with increasingly global supply chain databases. Its function is twofold: it serves as a social media platform as well as an internal dashboard for businesses. As a social platform it allows the sharing of information about supply chains and the calculation of carbon footprints, mapping product traceability and social corporate responsibility. As an internal dashboard, it provides companies with a supply chain information management system in order to define strategies and engage in risk planning and response.
