The Importance of Supply Chain Sustainability

January 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

According to Bain & Company study, companies employing sophisticated
supply chain methods enjoy 12x greater profit than companies with
unstructured methods. Some of the largest companies in the world
understand that including the supply chain in having an attitude of
sustainability makes business sense. Simply claiming that a business is
green or sustainable is not enough today. Stakeholders are more focused
on knowing how your business is sustainable and green. Supply chain
forms one such part of any business, which plays an important role in making an organization sustainable.

From a sustainability perspective, it is imperative that companies
implement processes to assess the risk and opportunities of suppliers and
the entire supply chain. Companies need to formulate structures to
evaluate and audit their suppliers, engage their supplier ecosystem in
training and awareness programmes to build sustainable practices, and
use technology intervention to continuously assess their supplier
sustainability and performance. To be sustainable, a supply chain must
operate within the thresholds imposed by nature and society, and more
importantly, value chain sustainability is an important component of ‘doing good business’.
