About the product

Supply chain sustainability is increasingly recognized as a key component of corporate responsibility. Managing the social, environmental and economic impacts of supply chains, and combating corruption make good business sense. However, supply chains consist of continuously evolving markets and relationships. To navigate this complex terrain, this guide offers a few baseline definitions and practical steps that companies can take toward integrating sustainability into procurement strategies, using the United Nations Global Compact principles as the basis to work toward supply chain sustainability, and it includes numerous examples of good practice to illustrate the steps towards sustainable supply chain management.
