Next Professional Development Meeting: January 17, 2022 - 7:00 PM
In this new environment ASCM Lehigh Valley is proud to offer learning opportunities virtually. We value the safety of our members and their families.
For the January 2022 PDM we will be offering a course through Linkedin Learning focusing on Sustainability in Supply Chain.
Building an effective and measurable sustainability plan
"Sustainability is a major concern across all realms of commerce these days. And as it turns out, the majority of greenhouse gas emissions are found in the supply chain: Product sourcing, manufacturing, distribution, and delivery have a huge impact on air, soil, and water. So when it comes to sustainability, it’s largely the responsibility of supply chain professionals to identify areas of impact where small changes can make a big difference. In this course, Sarah Barnes-Humphrey shares case studies, real world examples, and lessons from her 20 years of experience to give you practical advice on what you need to do to start building an effective and measurable sustainability plan that your whole business buys into. As Sarah shows, a thorough sustainability program won’t only have a positive environmental impact, it also touches on areas like human rights, ethical labor practices, and anti-corruption. Plus, it can reduce costs, create efficiency, mitigate risk, and increase brand value."
