Sustainable Supply Chain Topics

Sustainable Supply Chain Management involves integrating environmentally, social, and financially viable practices into the complete supply chain lifecycle, from product design and development to material selection, (including raw material extraction or agricultural production), manufacturing, packaging, transportation, distribution, etc to final consumers.
It involves the active streamlining of a business’s supply-side activities to maximize customer value and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
Simply claiming your operation is ‘sustainable’ or ‘green’ isn’t enough anymore. Your clients, customers, and even your staff members, want to actually know how you are sustainable.
The topics helps you acquire the knowledge, skills and expertise required to implement, measure and improve on processes and procedures in order to document and report your activities to stakeholders based on valid and verifiable ESG data across your entire supply chain.
