Green Supply Chains – A CEO’s Handbook presented to global leaders in Taiwan

Cutting edge academic research in Green Supply Chain is very sparse. Even rarer is an actionable handbook giving comprehensive know-how on achieving green supply chains. Global Supply Chain Group’s presentation at the Green Supply Chains Workshop organized by the National Tsing Hua University in Hsin-chu was a world first combination of the two. “Any corporation can become carbon neutral by outsourcing every carbon producing activity. To create real and tangible positive impact on the environment smart corporations are thinking beyond the traditional boundaries and reaping huge dividends in the public relations war” said Vivek Sood, the Managing Director of Global Supply Chain Group based in Sydney, Australia Potential for Green Supply Chains has long been recognized and acknowledged. However, many reasons have impeded the adoption of green supply chain principals by corporations. One of the reasons has been lack of comprehensive methodology and tool kit to make it happen. Global Supply Chain Group has now finished its research and titled its new, yet to be released report GREEN SUPPLY CHAINS – A CEO’S HANDBOOK. This report is based on the proprietary research, interviews with more than key 100 executives, original case studies, green system and process mapping, and nearly 12 man-months of original analysis by top-tier strategy consulting caliber analysts. It gives a holistic view of the green supply chains through the decades, traces how business and supply chains have always moved in lock-step with each other and creates a map of future of the green supply chains. It also takes into account the trends, the capabilities, the changing business needs, and geo-political realities to create a holistic view of Green Supply Chains and their key elements. This report helps answer the 5 key questions one needs to answer in order to move your supply chains towards green supply chains:

Dr. Wolfgang Partsch, a senior partner with Global Supply Chain Group, based in Munich , Germany said “Supply Chain methodologies are now more than 25 years old. Innovative companies are moving way beyond the basics to collaborate on creating a variety of supply chain results, including environmentally sensible outcomes. This report is a big step in furthering that discussion. It should be on the bookshelf of every progressive manager.” More details on the report are available by contacting Global Supply Chain Group on the address given below.

  • Let me tell you I am reading about this topic these days and I’ll share what all I’ve learned about the GSCM so far,

    Green Supply Chain Management is all about delivering products and services from suppliers, manufacturers to end customers through material flow, information flow, and cash flow in the context of the environment.

    Traditional Supply Chain Management focuses on Total Quality, optimum Cost and best service which in some way contributed to the environment. Today’s Green Supply chain management mandates to incorporate the environmental idea in each and every stage of the product and service in a Supply Chain.

    Hence, Supply chain managers have a great role in developing innovative environmental technologies to tackle the problems faced by the economy on environmental problems and communicate this to every stakeholder in the chain. Lean Manufacturing is eliminating waste in every stage of the supply chain. It focuses on producing economically and environmentally friendly quality products which meet customer expectation. It is the best practice to be followed since it reduces inventory, saves space and energy. Hence Lean manufacturing contributes to the Green environment.

    I hope this helps.

  • I read about the Hands on report for CEO. Is there any benefit to getting this report? is it help out me to get solutions for most of the common mistakes in business transformation? I hope I’ll get answers of my queries.

  • I heard about Green supply chain and also interested to adopt it into my company. But not sure about the expenses it will take to go green. Is there any way to find out total expenses? Should I do it or not?

  • Nice article Vivek. Thanks for sharing the agenda and discussions of Green Supply Chain Workshops in this article. It is somewhat impossible for businesses to be carbon neutral as most of the firms and organizations are reluctant in adopting carbon free or carbon neutral ideas. The reason behind this resistance could be the infrastructural changes that carbon neutral strategies would bring with them.

  • The concept of a green supply chain would definitely increase the organizational capabilities and throughput. It is sad to know that the key co-operation are not willing to adopt environment-friendly strategies and ideas like the green supply chain. As the business needs change, the trends are also transformed. The organizations and business setups should start thinking earnestly to adopt the notion of the green supply chain so that they may not face business difficulties in the future.

  • I appreciate the efforts of Global Supply Chain Group for creating, configuring and promoting green and sustainable approaches at a global level. Supply chain transformation is important. Transformation of business processes and designs would greatly help to achieve the purpose of the green supply chain. Similarly, the formulation of green policies and their timely execution would help to save the world. Go efficient, go green.

  • Such an interesting article Vivek. As the public becomes more and more aware of environmental problems and global warming, consumers will surely be asking plenty of questions about the goods and products they are purchasing. Organizations will have to expect questions about how green their manufacturing approaches and supply chain processes are, how immense their carbon footprint is, and how they recycle and reutilize.
