"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.

Sydney, Australia, December 01, 2007 --(PR.com)-- “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 100 key 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:
1. What are the tangible and intangible benefits of moving towards green supply chains?
2. What are the costs – both direct, and indirect?
3. What influence do we have over our suppliers, their suppliers and our customers that would allow us to jointly work together and move the supply chain towards a green supply chain?
4. In our end to end supply chain, which party has the most influence? How can we encourage them to think ‘green’? Why?
5. How will we communicate our progress towards the green supply chain to the key stakeholders? How will we engage them?

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.”
