The more corporations around the globe focus on sustainability, the more they realize that their greatest challenges and opportunities often lie outside their own offices and manufacturing plants. To make a truly significant lifecycle leap, large companies have to work on greening their supply chains.
Recognizing this, Wharton’s Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL) devoted its 2012 annual conference to “Greening the Supply Chain: Best Business Practices and Future Trends.” Attended by noted academics and professionals, the April 26 conference covered a broad range of topics.
This special report, a collaboration between IGEL and Knowledge@Wharton, zeroes in on four of the most pressing issues in the field, using information from the conference, as well as additional interviews and research:
• Managing Green Supply Chains: Best Practices and Long-term Solutions
• Walking the Talk: Speed Bumps on the Road to Green
• The Greening of Supply Chain Information Systems
• Greening the Supply Chain: Driving Transportation Reform
