The importance of sustainable and socially responsible business practices places global supply chain practices in the spotlight for corporate executives. To be effective, sustainable development must extend from an individual company, both up and down the supply chain, and can be extremely complex. Driving the sustainability agenda in all sectors of the economy demands that we understand how our supply chains contribute to improved resource use, support socially responsible and inclusive practices in our upstream and downstream supply chains, and deliver true sustainability to consumers. This seminar will provide an understanding of how to manage supply chains to deliver a greater environmental and social impact.
Seminar Learning Objectives:
- The Sustainability Agenda
- Global Supply Chains – their impact
- Optimization of resource usage
- Sustainable and responsible sourcing
- Innovation in ‘green supply chains’
