Supply chain and logistics leaders can and must contribute to the sustainability cause. Building collaborative supply chains and optimizing operations are crucial contributions to mitigate the global climate crisis. So, how we can go about it? You might be surprised to learn that you have opportunities to make your supply chain more sustainable quite readily available.
First, we must leverage data: measuring the carbon footprint and impact along different steps of the supply chain is vital to take relevant decisions and plan interventions. Supply chain visibility is key: understanding and measuring the impacts of processes from planning and sourcing to returns, allows businesses to revise and activate more sustainable options. A Supply Chain visibility tool can help map the gaps and opportunities in your supply chain to start making changes for a greener business today.
Second, digital transformation is a must: cutting-edge technologies, such as automation and AI, can drastically improve processes efficiency, reducing resource and time efforts and waste. Innovative sustainable practices in packaging, such as sustainable materials or cartonization algorithms, avoid litter and excessive carbon emissions for transport.
Third, we must come together. Large enterprises can take a lead to help guide their smaller suppliers and partners in their decarbonization initiatives. Collaboration and knowledge sharing between the different actors in the supply chain ecosystem are fundamental to achieve sustainability goals.
Last but certainly not least, there must be purpose: supply chain leaders must believe in the cause and implement sustainable practices through their business, engaging employees and stakeholders in the process.
