SC sustainability

Supply chain sustainability is a holistic perspective of supply chain processes and technologies that goes beyond the focus of delivery, inventory and traditional views of cost.

Supply chain sustainability is a holistic perspective of supply chain processes and technologies that goes beyond the focus of delivery, inventory and traditional views of cost. This emerging philosophy is based on a commonly accepted principle that socially responsible products and practices are not only good for the environment, but are also important for long-term profitability.

In practice, supply chain sustainability can include projects to reduce energy costs and any form of waste as well as ones to apply “green” technologies within transportation and logistics networks. A larger shift involves a deeper level of collaboration with internal and external supply chain partners to reexamine delivery methods, products, packaging and measurement systems.
