On September 19th 2012, a workshop on supply chain management, in London, UK. This workshop is designed to enable you to detect and control carbon hotspots in your supply chain. Many organizations already recognize the importance of engaging their supply chain in order to increase efficiency and improve profitability, but most do not know where to start or how to make their suppliers start taking real action. Key challenges faced by organizations can include; not knowing how to footprint or what the baseline data is, what targets to set, who to address about supply chain management; and how cost effective reductions can be practically achieved.
The Carbon Trust is running this workshop to help you instigate real change by engaging your supply chain to deliver actual cost savings.
They will also explain how you can benefit from their new service which can help you wherever you are on the path to sustainability because it is tailored to meet each organization’s needs. It delivers rapid return on investment and is a genuine end to end solution.
