"Building Sustainable Supply Chains: Original Research to Help Supply Chain Professionals Reduce Waste and Improve Sustainability"

Understanding this research allows supply chain professionals to confidently create smarter, more sustainable programs for a modern supply chain.

Sustainability is no longer optional. It is a necessary priority in the eyes of consumers and collaborators alike. Smarter sustainability choices at all levels of the supply chain are essential to success. This whitepaper provides insights into sustainability initiatives and their results from global shippers across a broad range of countries and industries. This information will aid supply chain professionals in understanding dominant trends and identifying opportunities for action. Some of the information covered includes:

  • How to decide who takes ownership of advancing sustainability. While sustainability is a team effort, clear leadership is essential to developing effective sustainability initiatives. There are five main ways respondents chose to delegate ownership of sustainability.
  • Sustainability starts with procurement. The concept of sustainability as a team effort extends beyond an organization’s boundaries. Survey respondents shared the importance of sustainability in their supply chain request-for-proposals process, and how that process may be changing in the future.
  • How to establish effective sustainability goals. Without short-term and long-term goals, supply chain sustainability will inevitably remain elusive. The research shows that most global shippers have clear goals for the coming months and years. This whitepaper lays out the most common themes for goal setting, as well as the benefits organizations are seeing in return for their efforts.
  • Return on investment for different sustainability strategies. There are different ways to measure return on investment. Survey responses point to four key metrics used to critically evaluate effectiveness. The research also reveals which strategies respondents say are providing the greatest benefits.
