Day 1 Opening Remarks: 10:00 – 10:30
Ethical behaviour and commitment to environmentally sustainable practices need not be at the expense of profitability. Best practices in logistics and supply chain bring together ethics, sustainability and bottom line performance in a holistic approach which provides companies with a ‘triple advantage’. What is a ‘Social Licence to Operate’ and how does it work? How can ‘green and gold’ practices release economic value? What are the risks to companies of ignoring or not investigating the behaviour of their suppliers? This session brings together speakers who will identify best practice and how it can make a difference to the supply chain and logistics industry.
