The inclusion of sustainability issues in Supply Chain Management activities implies the willingness of organizations to measure, monitor and evaluate their performance, taking into account the existing trade off between the economic, social and environmental dimensions from a triple bottom line (TBL) viewpoint. This approach allows companies to have a comprehensive, and above all, strategic vision of the Supply Chain: reducing supply and distribution costs; defining cooperation and coordination relationships with their suppliers; and improving customer satisfaction.
The third of the “Business & SDGs Workshops” promoted by the Global Compact Network Italy Foundation during 2017 will focus on sustainable supply-chain management systems. The meeting will take place on 4th October 2017 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am in Milan at Bocconi University during the national edition of the CSR and Social Innovation Exhibition and will involve the following:
- analysis of the theme "Sustainable Supply Chain Management" and its role within the development framework proposed by Agenda 2030;
- illustration and insight into the management model proposed by the UN Global Compact with reference to Supply Chain Sustainability (SCS);
- presentation of the TenP - Sustainable Supply-Chain Self-Assessment Platform;
- sharing corporate testimonies (comparing experiences)
