Book now

This two-week programme combines:
Supply Chain Management: Issues and Solutions: 05 days
Identifying and Delivering Sustainable Supply Chain Solutions: 05 days

Efficient Supply Chain Management (SCM) is essential to organisational success. However, in order to be fully effective, SCM practices must also be sustainable. Now more than ever, businesses need to ensure their environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives are met throughout the procurement and supply chain process.

This in-depth toolkit will give you the tools to get the most out of your supply chains and relationships with key suppliers and customers. In week one, delegates will explore the strategic role of SCM, and cover the key techniques involved in developing a successful SCM strategy from the raw commodities through to finished products.

In week two, you will learn to identify key areas of the supply chain where sustainability concepts and goals could be integrated. Delegates will examine three areas that are fundamental to your developing a sustainable supply chain: Profit (economic performance), People (social sustainability) and Planet (environmental sustainability).
