Sustainable Supply Chain Management: Best Practices and Strategies
The importance of supply chain sustainability has been growing in recent years with consumers increasingly prioritizing environmental, social and economic (ESG) responsibilities. In response, companies are recognizing the benefits of sustainable practices for their bottom line. A sustainable supply chain can help companies maximize value by reducing costs, improving their reputation, and building stronger relationships with suppliers and customers.
Sustainability has become a critical issue for the global supply chain, as companies look for ways to reduce their impact on the environment and ensure long-term economic viability. From green procurement and sustainable packaging to energy efficiency and waste reduction, there are many ways that companies can address sustainability in their supply chain. As the world continues to prioritize sustainability, it will be interesting to see how the global supply chain evolves and embraces sustainable practices.
To help procurement professionals address this goal, we will examine current case studies from around the world to learn how organizations are driving sustainable procurement.
Enroll in this course, and you will walk away with a roadmap to drive sustainable procurement in your organization.
