Slowly but steadily, each product’s full social and environmental history becomes accessible and this is key for circular business models, Corporate Social Responsibility programmes. But then, transparency also creates competitive and reputation risks. How to act? And what’s the role of blockchain technology in this? It might be a secure way to register events and provide supply chain data insights, but the immutability can be pretty scary. What if your mistakes are out there, forever? Insiders have high hopes of so called ‘self sovereign identities’ - enabling users to authorise specific partners to access specific parts of their profiles and data sets. This makes a lot of sense from a privacy or a business intelligence angle, but would it suffice for our transparency standards?
