#Sostenibilidad #Estrategia 4.0 – #Inditex: ¿de la #economía circular a la sostenible? | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Parece que por fin empresas y gobiernos comienzan a ponerse las pilas. Queda mucho por hacer pero el avance en estos últimos años en concienciación y este último año en concreción está siendo importante. Personalmente, comienzo a sentirme optimista respecto a un futuro sostenible y me enorgullece que empresas españolas líderen este camino.

Una empresa a la que tenía vetada y a la cual he decidido levantar el veto es Inditex, tras haber visto la comparecencia de Antonio Álvarez, su director de Sostenibilidad Medioambiental, en la Jornada Sostenibilidad (medioambiental) 2017 que organizó el pasado día 23 de Marzo, Executive Forum.

A veces sólo tienes que dar el salto, y construir tus alas durante la caída”. Kobi Yamada

A lo largo de estos 4 años, si 4 años desde el pasado 8 de abril del 2013 (164 artículos con el de hoy), de la creación del blog, donde abordamos la importancia de la creación de empresas que valoren las ideas, qué además nos proporcionan una colaboración, dónde además las personas que “dirigen” intentarán definir la cultura de la propia organización para así definir las estrategias dentro de la empresa, como la mejora de los procesos. Hace justo 1 año y poco más hablamos de la Creación de una cultura de Colaboración dentro de la Organización. Con ello ya quería dar pistas de dónde queríamos llegar, para ver muchas veces la importancia de la colaboración que todo ella tiene.
