Supply Chain Asia Annual Forum 2009 in Singapore






January 8, 2019

Supply Chain Asia Annual Forum 2009 in Singapore is a huge success with a talk on Green Supply Chain by Vivek Sood of Global Supply Chain Group

Sharing the stage were senior executives and thought leaders from various walks of life: Mr. Vivek Sood – Managing Director of Globaal Supply Chain Group, Peter O’Brien – Head, Asia Pacific Distribution & Supply Chain Practices, Russell Reynolds Associates, and Associate Professor Mark Goh – Director, Industry Research, The Logistics Institute Asia Pacific. The topic was Green Supply Chains – an topic on which Mr. Sood had recently written a book. The venue was the Annual Forum of Supply Chain Asia in 2009 at Sheraton Hotel in Singapore. Panel discussion was very informative and audience was passionately engaged in the discussion. Mr. Sood pointed out that “Greenwashing is giving a bad name to attempts of multi-national corporations to create Green Supply Chains. Any corporations can be completely carbon neutral. All it has to do is outsource every carbon producing activity to third parties.” This further encouraged an end-to-end supply chain sustainability discussion among the audience who wanted to know what is the best way to get started and to sustain momentum. Mr. Sood indicated that the book GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN – AN ACTION MANIFESTO covered precisely this detail and was going to be released soon world-wide by its publishers – John Wiley and Sons.

  • The very important topic raised in the “Supply Chain Asia Annual Forum 2009 In Singapore” If we think to go green, we should stop greenwashing first. I’m happy that this topic raised on the international level.

  • Thanks for sharing the insights of Supply Chain Asia Annual Forum held in Singapore. I am glad to read about the popularity of green supply chain and green industry research. People are now more aware of the importance of green technologies and green industrial production trends. All the industries must consider bringing home the green industrial manufacturing concepts and ideas.

  • These days, carbon neutrality is becoming equally popular among both at business and industry level. I agree with your thought that every nation can become carbon neutral if they outsource their carbon-producing activities to other parties. I think the industries can also survive by adopting the same outsourcing strategies at minor and major levels. At the same time, the industry and business executive can also survive by adopting a green supply chain and management approaches.

  • Good article Vivek. While there is so much to discuss and consider about green supply chain, I would like to say that the only hurdle in the path of green supply chain acceptance is the reluctance of executives and stakeholders. There is also an absence of consultancy services from the experts. Most of the executives are not willing to acquire such services as they are not willing to leave behind the conventional methods of production and supply chain.
