Sustainable Innovative Logistics Panel at the CONECT T&T, April 2nd 2013
Speakers from MIT, EDF, Staples and Ocean Spray
Welcome to the home of free sustainability education for the Supply Chain/Logistics Professional since 2010.
“Your company has decided to go green, your customers are asking you about the carbon footprint of a particular shipment, you are a logistic professional out of work and are looking for the next big opportunity” – these are just a few examples of how this website can become a very helpful tool to educate yourself for the present and future world of Supply Chain Management.
Please visit our archived news section where over 90 stories concerning real life examples are waiting for you.
Definition of Sustainability:
"Meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs."
