The operational structure of a blockchain mirrors the chaotic nature of supply chains: Participants may come and go as they see fit, and when it is to their advantage to do so. Their purpose for being there is to conduct commerce. There is, by design, no global oversight authority. Unlike current supply chains, however, blockchains provide a self-auditing history of transactions, verifiable via strong cryptography. The records stored in such systems may not be changed after the fact. Opportunities exist to deliver transparency such that supply chains can be mapped, provenance ensured, and expected standards are enforced. Current supply chains would look very different indeed if they had such features.
10:00  The Future of Responsible Investing: Blockchain Due Diligence
Slides, Video
Alessia Falsarone
COVID-19 has turned supply chain assessment for responsible sourcing of basic commodities and other goods upside down. In the post pandemic world, responsible investors will be driving the next generation of investment flows that rely on the impact of environmental and social (E&S) practices on the value of trade. How will they integrate data from global supply chains to define E&S impact?
10:30  How to build a sustainable supply chain for the Luxury Industry

John Wolpert
The open source Baseline Protocol (baseline-protocol.org) launched last March and broke the Internet…at least the corner of it that obsesses about blockchain. It started with three companies — Ernst & Young, ConsenSys and Microsoft — and grew in a matter of weeks to hundreds of companies and individuals, including some of the most venerable companies on the planet in sectors from healthcare to energy…all with a focus on the coming explosion in B2B Business Process Automation. The Baseline Protocol is not a product, a platform, a token, coin, scheme or solution. It’s a way of using a public blockchain Mainnet like Ethereum as a common frame of reference to ensure consistency and continuity across multiple systems and complex multi-party workflows without introducing a new threat surface for your security officer to pitch a fit about. Sound like magic? Not really.In fact, it’s pretty boring. But after five years of blockchain hype, boring is the new exciting.
11:50  How digitized supply chain financing can help secure supply chains during crises
Slides, Video
Atul Patel
Learn how large scale enterprises can lead and run completely digitized, secure, and efficient supplier financing processes. In these times of urgency, dltledgers’ SCF (supply chain finance) solutions are ready-to-deploy and can be configured to blend in seamlessly with existing legacy and ERP models to facilitate regular trade flows. Key Takeaways: 1. How enterprises can build the financial resilience of their supplier network, 2. How working cycle capital can be optimized to improve cash flow control,3. How organizations can lead and run their own supplier financing ecosystem.
12:00  QuillTrace Blockchain agnostic Provenance as a service
Slides, Video
QuillTrace is a Blockchain Technology based procurement platform made easier to integrate with the existing Supply chain systems to make it more transparent, sustainable and secure.
12:10  Blockchain types and supply chains
Slides, Video
Bharadwaj Varanasi
University of Queensland
A public blockchain, private blockchain, and transaction privacy would be explained clearly with differences among them. We pick the backdrops of the global supply chain in Australia. We try how the blockchain is currently playing its part in overcoming the typical global supply chain problems. We see the ideas of how the private blockchain, privacy transactions can enter the supply chain.
12:20  Frethan Blockchain Deployment
Slides, Video
Lindy Chen
ChinaDirect Sourcing
FRETHAN Blockchain is a platform with international trade certificate storing as its core. In order to provide trust and security in transaction process, the blockchain technology is used as the technical framework along with smart contracts. Blockchain technology uses decentralized trust’s management to provide a secure transaction record that does not require third-party intermediary guarantees

13:00  Strengthening consumer trust in a beef supply chain with a blockchain-enabled human-machine reconcile mechanism
Slides, Video
Shoufeng Cao
Queensland Univerity of Technology
Our blockchain-enabled traceability prototype developed with Australian beef suppliers was empirically tested with Chinese consumers to identify trust effects. To further strength consumer trust, this paper explores new features for a human-machine reconcile mechanism to enable supply chain actors to fulfil their responsibilities for end-to-end visibility and transparency of the supply chain.
13:30  Blockchain-based Solutions for Traceability,Trust, Privacy and Quality Control in Supply Chains
Slides, Video
Sidra Malik
University of New South Wales
Blockchain-enabled supply chains provide a solution to traceability, audit, and provenance. We propose: 1) ProductChain:Consortium-based traceability framework with a scalable network model 2) TrustChain:reputation system to promote the honest contribution of data 3) Privacy preservation framework to prevent disclosure of trade secrets 4) A framework for quality control and dispute resolution
