Jun 12, 2012
Supply chain sustainability is a topic of growing importance to businesses, governments and civil society partly because the scale, scope and severity of global economic, political, social and environmental challenges requires a coordinated response from all sectors of society. Companies have significant financial, technical, organisational and intellectual resources they can contribute to solving these sustainability challenges. They also have a critical role to play by developing and improving their policies and practices, in order to manage effectively the social, environmental and economic impacts of their supply chains. How exactly to do this is not always obvious for companies, so this Quick Self-Assessment and Learning Tool is designed to help determine the appropriate scope of their supply chain sustainability programmes.
