Supply chain sustainability
This free course, Supply chain sustainability, will define what is meant by a sustainable supply chain. This is important, because most of us will immediately (and often only) think of issues related to the environmental impact of the production and distribution of goods and services. Whilst the environmental perspective is certainly very important, it is not the only perspective. To get a holistic overview of supply chain sustainability, all the perspectives of supply chain sustainability should be considered. Once you have a general understanding of the supply chain sustainability, you will look at the environmental, the financial, the social, and the external stakeholder or network perspectives.
