Global, complex, and multi-layered value chains have become common for many industries such as manufacturing, electronics, pharmaceutical, chemical, and retail. In addition, globalization, increased environmental awareness, social media, and competitive pressure create a new operating environment of transparency, and social responsibility requirements for all industries.
Supply chain risks such as regulatory non-compliance; increasing cost of material inputs; and human rights, and ethical violations can result in business disruption, financial losses, brand and reputation damages, customer dissatisfaction, or decreased market competiveness. By improving environmental, social and economic performance throughout their supply chains, companies may conserve resources, optimize processes, uncover product innovations, save on costs, increase labor productivity, and promote their corporate values and culture across their value chain.
CH2M HILL will present an overview of the importance of supply chain sustainability; share best practice examples from leaders in the industry, and offer recommendations on practical first steps to take to improve your supply chain sustainability performance.
