Today’s green supply chains

 

Green supply chains do exist.

In a recent interview with SupplyChainBrain, University of Denver supply chain faculty member Paul Nuzum discusses his research into green supply chains, and as the article emphasizes, “it’s not enough for a product to be green — the entire manufacturing and delivery system must reflect it as well.”   Nuzum provides numerous examples of corporations’ efforts to create green supply chains in the areas of transportation (e.g., more efficient load planning), distribution (e.g., solar power) and packaging (e.g., reduction in resins).
