Two Key Supply Chain Capabilities for Companies Affected by Steel, Aluminum Tariffs

Two Key Supply Chain Capabilities for Companies Affected by Steel, Aluminum Tariffs | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Blind spots in the supply chain can signal an area where cost optimization is not a factor, or even where increasing costs at a sourcing level aren’t accounted for. There’s a very good chance, then, that organizations importing steel and aluminum from overseas will face higher supply costs without knowing about it until much further down the road.

Overcoming Complexity: The Perennial Challenge in Sustainability-Led Behaviour Change | Sustainable Brands | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
The issues we tackle are complex, big and important. They create debate and are subject to scrutiny from scientists, government and big business, as well as individuals. But whatever the reason, if we want to create large-scale behavior change and truly engage people in sustainability, we are going to have to cut through this complexity. We must simplify, create clarity, and make it easy and convenient for people to opt into sustainability. Otherwise, nothing will ever change.

Good Corporate Social Practices: A Look at Unilever’s Supply Chain Transparency

Good Corporate Social Practices: A Look at Unilever’s Supply Chain Transparency | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Establishing robust and comprehensive supply chain policies, however, is just the first step in providing compliance assurances.  Supply chain contracts can include the right to audit suppliers to ensure proper oversight and adherence to ethical and sustainable practices.  Companies can also encourage compliance with supplier codes of conduct by measuring successes via quantifiable metrics.  Not only can these successes be used to manage suppliers, but they can also be published for customers to look over – better visibility and corporate accountability can lead to a public relations improvement.
