The case for greening your supply chain

The case for greening your supply chain

Virtually every link in your supply chain can be made more sustainable, from packaging to building maintenance.

In 2009, Supply Chain & Logistics Canada produced reports on green supply chain management in logistics and transportation services, manufacturing, and retail chains and consumer products. They found the bottom-line benefits of going green include:

  • Reduced distribution costs
  • Greater energy efficiency
  • Service differentiation
  • Customer retention
  • Lower greenhouse gas emissions
  • Water conservation
  • Waste reduction
  • Less packaging
  • Product and packaging recycling and reuse
  • Enhanced compliance with environmental regulations
  • Access to new markets
  • Improved risk management
  • Increased sales

Today’s consumers want to know that companies are dealing with a green supply chain – that’s the number one driver.
