Building a Sustainable Supply Chain coming May 8 - 10
Excited to work again with these superb faculty to again offer this three-day workshop.
PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID: "Great class. I learned so much about sustainability. Never realized how serious a component this is to business." “Overall, the program challenged my vision of sustainability. I can clearly understand why sustainability is important to business and society. This class should be offered to the CEOs, CFOs, etc.”
Sustainability in the supply chain provides a win-win for every organization. Not only is it good for the environment; it's also good for profitability. The logistics sector has been at the forefront of green innovation for this very reason. The best supply chain leadership today requires the identification and management of environmental and social risks and opportunities.
Traditional supply chain fundamentals are necessary but not sufficient in understanding and strategically managing new risks and opportunities in the realm of sustainability. Driving this change is a combination of pressures from customers, suppliers, competitors, employees, regulations, and resource constraints. This program is designed to equip supply chain leaders with the latest tools, concepts, and business practices for managing an environmentally and economically sustainable supply chain.
Building a Sustainable Supply Chain prepares you to understand and take advantage of strategic sustainability risks and opportunities in your supply chain. Specifically, you will strengthen your ability to:
Identify, understand and measure the environmental and social risks of greatest strategic importance to your business
Integrate environmental and social measures into core supply chain fundamentals from procurement to operations management
Measure and report on financial returns from managing environmental and social costs and risks
Design waste out of your products, services and value chain
