Logistics (3B): Our Role in SCM Sustainability

The myriad implications when we use the word “sustainability” in supply chain management are infrequently addressed strategically and in a comprehensive orderly manner. Usually we think of sustainability as a one-off instance when we need a “conflict” material or someone decides that we should use paper rather than plastic straws. That is not good enough. SCM managers, as senior drivers of the economy, must build global sustainability into our budgets and, thus, into our product or service pricing. Our speaker will present a mosaic that leads to being good citizens at the same time as being good managers.
