Leo Bonanni, "Sourcemap and Supply Chain Transparency"
Supply chains are the backbone of globalization and understanding them is the key to social and environmental justice. Leonardo Bonanni will talk about Sourcemap -- the first platform for supply chain transparency -- which started as his Ph.D. thesis project at the Media Lab and is now a company dedicated to helping individuals and organizations find out where things come from, what they’re made of, and how they impact people and the environment. Companies use Sourcemap to communicate transparently with their customers and tell the story of how products are made. Thousands of maps have already been created for food, furniture, clothing, electronics and more.
Sourcemap has been featured by the BBC, NPR, the Globe and Mail, the Boston Globe and received awards from Scientific American, Ars Electronica, and ID magazine among others.
Leonardo Bonanni is the Founder and CEO of Sourcemap.com. He was recently named one of 2011’s “100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics” by the Ethisphere Institute. He has a Ph.D. from the MIT Media Lab’s Tangible Media Group, an MS and a Master of Architecture from MIT, a BA from Columbia, and he teaches sustainable product design at Parsons and MIT.
