Sustainable Supply Chain Management
While conventional supply chain management focuses on the speed, cost and reliability of operations, sustainable supply chain management adds the goals of upholding environmental and societal values. Sustainability addresses global issues such as climate change, water security, deforestation, human rights, fair labour practices and corruption.
How can a supply chain be sustainable?
Companies have taken steps to lower their carbon emissions globally, cut wastage and improve labour conditions. By tracking sustainability metrics in supply chain management (SCM) systems, you monitor multifaceted programs that, for example, prioritise renewable energy, recycle products and materials or encourage greater social responsibility among suppliers.
Organisations can use intelligence and pre-defined rules to ensure that products aren’t shipped unnecessarily. For example, ensuring products are shipped from the closest distribution centre.
Why is sustainability important in the supply chain?
Research has shown that, for most companies, the supply chain is responsible for the bulk of their environmental impact. By their very nature, supply chains often involve energy-intensive production and transportation as goods are made and moved around the globe. Therefore, organisations can create a substantial impact through changes to their supply chain.
