I am always fascinated by the concept of “green” supply chains. This not only because I was an Environmental Science major in college, but because, it is interesting to read where companies can actually lessen their impact on the environment and reduce their costs with the same strategy. It seems impossible on the surface, but very true.
In fact, I like to show prospective clients how they can use our optimization technology to account for green suppliers in their award allocation while maintaining the lowest cost.
To that end, it was great to see a new blog by Avaro CEO, Tim Albinson, which is dedicated to the subject. I recommend saving 2Sustain to your favorites or blog reader and become exposed to concepts that Tim speaks of. His first post was to define sustainability, which is a good way to start.
