Sustainable Supply Chain Management

Succeed With Sustainable Choices

Sustainability in business promotes organizational innovation, enhances risk management, enables sustainable growth, and helps to secure feasible conditions for business in the long term. Sustainability competence has become a crucial part of the basic business competence of every successful company. What sustainability choices should be made in your organization to support growth in a sustainable way? How do you align business and stakeholder goals in a sustainable way? And do you identify the areas that promote sustainability in your own work?

Nowadays, environmental, social, and economic sustainability are strongly interlinked in company operations, particularly in supply chain management. To achieve good long-term financial performance, companies must take into account their environmental and social impacts, not only within their own organization but throughout their supply chain. This means both minimizing risks related to sustainability and identifying sustainability opportunities.

The Sustainable Supply Chain Management program helps to understand what environmental and social sustainability means in the context of a supply chain, and how various approaches and tools can be applied in one’s own organization and supply chain. Properly designed environmental and social sustainability actions in a supply chain can create a competitive advantage, improving not only the corporate image but also creating cost savings.

This program is one of Aalto EE's Sustainable Business programs. Check all sustainability programs.
