What does a sustainable supply chain career look like?
Sustainable supply chain professionals lead on the often conflicting needs of people, the environment, development and the success of the business.
They support businesses to develop an environmental conscience, reducing costs while making choices that will positively impact our planet and the people who call it home.
Sustainable supply chain professionals enable organisations to measure and improve their sustainability performance whilst driving increased value and supporting a business’s overarching objectives.
Why are sustainable supply chains important?
Sustainable supply chains are crucial in the world of business. They allow for better interaction with local ecosystems, communities and economies, whilst creating more partnership opportunities for businesses and providing clear cost and time savings. More and more, organisations are striving to develop sustainable supply chain strategies to improve their environmental and social outputs.
This, in turn, requires sustainable supply chain professionals who will go on to consider the environmental and social impact of a business’s operations across every step of the supply chain, from sourcing raw materials to production, storage and delivery.
Sustainable supply chain careers will simply grow in demand as the global economy aims to reach net zero. Sustainable supply chains are a way of keeping everyone accountable and they promote the best humanitarian and environmental practices.
This is why sustainable supply chain careers are essential to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
By promoting better, more environmentally-friendly ways to do business, society can transition towards a low carbon future.
