Companies are seeking to make their supply chains more sustainable, and they are setting goals around the three pillars of sustainability: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG). These goals are integral to their mission and vision for the organizations and are cascaded down to all departments. Therefore, ensuring that sustainability goals are integrated into their supply chain operations is the responsibility of every supply management professional. To start, sustainability principles and practices need to be understood so that they can be applied and measured successfully within the procurement cycle. Considerations must be given to supplier relationship management, risk management and continuous improvement, as these three practices provide a comprehensive approach for sustainable procurement.
The course of study also encourages students to reflect on their own values and actions, encouraging contributions to a more sustainable future. The course provides access for 60 days from the date of the purchase.
Earning a certificate is not the same as becoming a certified supply management professional. To learn more about the differences between certificates and certification, visit our certificates page.
