Book Description

A brand new collection of cutting-edge sustainable supply chain solutions… 3 authoritative books, now in a convenient e-format, at a great price!

3 authoritative eBooks deliver state-of-the-art guidance for leveraging supply chain sustainability to maximize business value

Organizations that prioritize sustainability are well positioned to increase profitability, reduce risk, and attract better customers, talent, and investors. This unique 3 eBook package brings together all the techniques, best practices, and case studies you need to make sustainability work throughout your supply chain. In The Lean Sustainable Supply Chain, Robert Palevich illuminates the business benefits of combining "lean" and "green," offering start-to-finish guidance for redesigning company infrastructure and technologies to achieve these benefits. Through a comprehensive case study, he shows how to manage change, innovation, talent, execution, inventory, warehousing, and transportation; integrate supply chain sustainability into business scorecards; make more effective use of 3PLs, information systems, and much more. He systematically addresses key technical issues ranging from forecasting methodologies and supplier integration to carbon tracking and quantifying lean savings. Next, in Creating a Sustainable Organization, Peter Soyka shows how to choose the right sustainability strategies, and then manage and measure them well. Soyka's actionable guide bridges the disparate worlds of the EHS/sustainability professional and the investor/analyst. Discover what the evidence says about linkages between sustainability and value… how to manage key stakeholder relationships influencing corporate response to EHS and social equity issues… how to effectively manage sustainability throughout the business… how to evaluate sustainability posture and performance from the standpoint of external investors and internal management… how to maximize the influence of organizational actors focused on sustainability, and much more. Finally, the Sustainability in Supply Chain Management Casebook is the firstcomprehensive collection of original case studies on building sustainability into the supply chain. Steven Leon covers a wide spectrum of social, economic and environmental issues, as well as new areas such as closed-loop supply chains. Topics include strategy, implementation, decision making, transportation, supplier relationships, collaboration, lean, continuous improvement, finance/economics, worker safety and rights, procurement, production, delivery, packaging, logistics, reverse logistics, and global supply chains. Each case study is supported with an authoritative introduction, teaching notes, and Q-and-A sections. Whatever your role in the sustainable supply chain, this collection will help you transform its promise into reality.
