Global Supply Chain Director
Thibault Gravier leads BSR’s Supply Chain Sustainability practice, focusing on the development and implementation of sustainable sourcing strategies with companies, collaborative initiatives, and research for innovative approaches. Thibault has more than 14 years of experience working with global organizations to dramatically improve the sourcing practices and sustainable impact of critical raw materials.
Prior to BSR, Thibault founded two entrepreneurial ventures: Actions & CO2, an engineering consulting firm specializing in carbon footprints, and then Transitions, a leading French consultancy agency specialized in sustainable sourcing, which he ran for more than eight years.
Through leading efforts in responsible fruit production to deforestation-free sourcing (including soy, palm oil/palm kernel oil, rubber, pulp and paper, coconut oil, and more) for the retail, cosmetic, and oleochemical sectors, Thibault has in-depth expertise in the complexity of supply chains and has pioneered innovative practices such as insetting, reverse sourcing strategies, and new business models for supply chains.
Beyond sustainable sourcing, Thibault has been involved in various projects to reduce the carbon footprint of some of the major fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) along their supply chains.
Thibault holds a M.S in Business and Administration and Environmental Management from ESC Amiens Business School and Melbourne Swinburne University of Technology and a Management Degree from Shanghai Dong Hua University.
