Benefits From Green Supply Chains Far Outweigh The Costs Experts Quote Recent Report

Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) April 23, 2008 -- Environmental pro-activism is generally assumed to come at an additional cost to the corporations. It is widely thought that going green is expensive. On the contrary, our modeling indicates that adoption of Green supply Chain methodology should result in overall cost reduction if it is done in a thorough and logical manner. said Vivek Sood, the Managing Director of Global Supply Chain Group based in Sydney, Australia.

The recently released report titled Green Supply Chains A CEO’s Handbook is based on the proprietary research, interviews with more than 100 key executives, original case studies, green system and process mapping, and nearly 12 man-months of original analysis by top-tier strategy consulting caliber analysts. It gives a holistic view of the green supply chains through the decades, traces how businesses and supply chains have always moved in lock-step with each other and creates a map for shaping the future of green supply chains. It also takes into account the trends, the capabilities, the changing business needs, and geo-political realities to create a comprehensive framework of Green Supply Chains and their key elements.

Tony Fedorowicz, one of the co-authors of the report said Our research has found that without any new technologies being utilised, just a move to a Green Supply Chain can reduce costs by 5-20%. The adoption of new technologies, however, can take cost reductions to a whole new level. In addition, by raising their Green credentials amongst customers, employees, government authorities and other stakeholders, companies also move rapidly towards ensuring a sustainable and successful future

Dr. Wolfgang Partsch, a senior partner with Global Supply Chain Group, based in Munich, Germany said After co-creating the supply chain management methodology in 1978, I have remained at the forefront of this field for the last 25 years by continually pushing the boundaries of thoughts and applications in Supply Chain Management. But, during all this time, nothing has excited me as much as our current endeavor on Green Supply Chains. It is the need of the moment, resonating in all directions. What is more important, it makes perfect commercial sense. This report is a big step in furthering that discussion. It should be on the bookshelf of every progressive manager.
