edie launches new guide to sustainable supply chains
Those wishing to help make their organisation's supply chains more sustainable now have access to a new edie guide on the topic, launched in association with pallet manufacturer PALLITE.
The free report offers an opportunity for businesses to understand the issues relating to successful integration and management of the supply chain into sustainability planning.
It looks at five core areas for businesses of all sizes and sectors to consider including blockchain, the circular economy, standards, collaboration and community engagement.
Through a deeper understanding of these areas, sustainability professionals will be able to scale up their ambitions for positively impacting the supply chain and delivering meaningful change with the businesses that they partner with.
The study looks at how sustainability in the supply chain is increasingly seen by c-suite and corporate social responsibility executives as an important element of a business’ overall strategy, delivering environmental benefits which also mitigate against risk, waste, financial costs and provide a competitive advantage.
The study comes at a time of increasing end-user awareness of sustainability in the supply chain and a desire for products and services to be delivered with provable and recognisable environmental credentials.
While companies have continued to measure their own internal sustainability for some time, there has been a slower uptake in the measurement and evaluation of their suppliers and customers – but times are changing.
The report also contains case studies relating to each of the areas and top tips and additionally a supporting viewpoint from the sponsor, PALLITE, offering its own example of how sustainability can be achieved for supply chain management.
