Green Supply Chains Certification Conference


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.

Resource access 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.

Throughout the green supply chains conference, attendees will engage with numerous case studies and best practices, further illustrating the theory and application of green supply chain management. These real-world examples give participants a vivid understanding of the principles discussed, solidifying their learning experience and equipping them with the tools necessary for successful implementation within their organizations.

The focus on the supply chain management workshop, sustainability seminars, and a green supply chain management certificate reinforces the commitment to lifelong learning and continuous improvement. Participants will leave this green supply chains conference with enhanced knowledge and a clear direction for how modern supply chains should evolve to meet the challenges of a changing world.
