Will Sobel, CEO of System Insights, recently wrote about the importance of eco-friendly Green Supply Chain Management on the company’s website. Sobel explained, “Designing and implementing sustainable supply chains is gaining importance these days, as depleting natural resources and increasing climate change risks have emphasized the need for eco-friendly manufacturing practices. The process of integrating environmental drivers into Supply Chain Management (SCM) is called Green Supply Chain Management.”
Green Supply Chain Management is motivated by diminishing raw materials, increased material waste and disposal, and increased environmental awareness among stake holders as well as being competitive among peers. Green Supply Chain Management focuses on identifying and minimizing the wastes generated in entire supply chain process. The waste reduction strategy could be long term or short term. The long term options are more strategic and the short term options are more tactical.
