Title:
Mastering Carbon Management: Balancing Trade-offs To Optimize Supply Chain Efficiencies

Abstract:
As the planet heats up, so do regulatory mandates to reduce greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Much of the opportunity to address CO2 emissions rests on the supply chain, compelling companies to look for new approaches to managing carbon effectively -- from sourcing and production, to distribution and product afterlife. The trade-offs in the supply chain are no longer just about cost, service and quality -- but cost, service, quality and carbon. By incorporating carbon reduction into their overall SCM strategy, companies can help reduce their environmental emissions footprint, strengthen their brand image and develop competitive advantage.
