Abstract:

Supply chains are critical for advancing sustainability. Sustainable supply chains require changes in transportation planning practices as well as suppliers and logistics business strategies. Drawing from several research projects, this presentation will examine lessons learned across multiple areas, ranging from supply chain sustainability metrics, labour conditions to waste reduction. The presentation will also touch on how to maintain sustainability goals under an exceptional global business disruption caused by Covid-19 with application to the food rescue supply chain.
