The Annual Spring Symposium

11th Annual Spring Symposium: Sustainable Supply Chains and the Triple Bottom Line

Sustainability is a rapidly evolving issue that supply chain professionals are facing in organizations of all sectors. Global challenges within increasingly extended supply chains mean that it is now impossible for an organization to ignore regulatory, economic, environmental and reputational pressures to address the sustainability agenda of ‘people, planet and profits.’

This year's Supply Chain Management Institute Spring Symposium will focus on sustainability and its relationship to the triple bottom line including common financial, social and environmental issues in supply chain management as well as tools, processes and metrics that can be used to address the needs of ‘people, planet and profits.’

Join industry professionals from diverse organizations as well as educators and students — tomorrow's supply chain leaders — to learn how organizations are incorporating sustainability into their supply chains. Topics such as circularity, environmental social governance (ESG), corporate social responsibility (CSR), offsets and credits, and diversity and inclusion will be explored.

Why Attend?

The SCMI Spring Symposium serves as an annual platform to exchange ideas and collaborate with industry peers on new and future supply chain trends and best practices. The Spring Symposium is also a great venue to exchange ideas with supply chain educators and students — the supply chain leaders of tomorrow. 

In just one value-packed day, you will hear engaging speakers from a variety of well-known and respected companies share their insights through a series of keynote presentations, panels and interactive workshops. For this event, we have assembled some of the most progressive minds to provide visionary insights into how they are addressing the sustainability agenda.

Key takeaways include:

  • Identifying central concepts and theories of CSR and the triple bottom line
  • Recognizing the effects supply chains may have on the environment
  • Exploring social, health, safety risks and remedies available to supply professionals when sourcing internationally
  • Examining specific measurement and reporting protocols in order to provide a proactive compliance strategy
  • Understanding that supply chain is at the center stage of sustainability
