The Supply Chain Sustainability Handbook

1st May 2018

This handbook outlines eight essential opportunities that businesses can seize upon now to drive supply chain sustainability. Each page of the handbook provides an overview of the opportunity, supplemented by top tips, ‘in action' case studies and expert comments from businesses that will be represented at edie's Sustainable Supply Chains 2018 conference in June.

Supply chains are complex beasts, often spanning multiple continents and involving numerous businesses, small and large. Every industry faces its own supply chain sustainability issues, from
human rights abuses to links to deforestation.

Auditing is a useful tool for a company to show how it is working to mitigate a range of environmental quandaries. But, as this handbook serves to highlight, moving beyond compliance is now crucial for any business looking to improve its environmental and social sustainability.

As organisations increasingly look for ways to build more resilient supply chains, a number of new opportunities have emerged which allow businesses to take their supply chain sustainability strategies onto the next level.
