Executive Summary

Are We Embarking On An Industrial Energy Management Revolution (Webinar)

Over the last 5 years, a combination of new regulations, weather events, resource scarcity and not for profit campaigns have pushed the issue of supply chain risk management onto the corporate agenda. Some firms have responded to these pressures by defining sustainable supply chain goals and implementing responsible sourcing policies. But the bulk of firms are still grappling with the right approach to tackle the problem. Since these are new risks, they fall outside the bounds of traditional supply chain management competence which focuses on inventory, logistics and storage. In many firms heads of procurement, sustainability and quality assurance have become involved in shaping policy and selecting solution providers.

This webinar helps individuals who are responsible for supply chain compliance, responsible sourcing and supply chain risk management to understand how to shape strategy and policies. It provides data from Verdantix supply chain benchmarks of the consumer electronics and food sectors which cover policies, disclosures, goals and metrics. For firms seeking a solution, the webinar explains what is available in the market from providers such as 3E Company, Actio, Aravo, Assent Compliance, BOMCheck, Foresite Systems, GreenSoft Tech, MetricStream and UL The Wercs.
