Green Supply Chains



The time for action on greening supply chains has come. Daily headlines report food shortages and concerns about energy security and dangerous climate change. Current forecasts suggest that by 2050 the human population will grow to around 9 billion and that per capita consumption of hard and soft commodities is set to increase. An incredible challenge lies ahead of us: already the production, extraction, and consumption of basic commodities are contributing to humanity's unsustainable ecological footprint.

Access to resources will be a major strategic corporate issue in the coming decades. We are convinced that the winners will be those companies that can demonstrate that their supply chains are clean and green
