In a previously unheard move, more and more companies are answering the supply chain crisis by building up their own logistics capabilities which might fuel the need for modern supply chain software products.
When speaking or designing sustainability strategies, the three prioritization levels “reduce, reuse, recycle” are often used as a framework for defining ecological measures. When transferring this to logistics, the latter two: Reusing and recycling apply to equipment and packaging but not to business processes. This leaves us with the first one: The reduction of carbon emissions. To make this as easy to understand as possible,here are four solutions to implement greener logistics.
Companies must help prevent the worst impacts of climate change by reducing their green house gas emissions (GHG). It has to happen as quickly as possible and as far down the Supply Chain as possible. The Supply Chains are responsible for the majority of global emissions. In this article we will investigate, how the Supply Chain can accelerate the journey to net zero emissions with advanced Supply Chain technology.
This slogan may seem a bit trite by now, but in terms of logistics and global supply chains it is indispensable when it comes to making shipping goods from A to B more sustainable. In the fight for a more sustainable and climate friendly economy, people are now not only skipping school on Fridays, but are also looking for intelligent and innovative technologies and solutions.
The exchange of goods is growing worldwide in the course of globalisation and the logistics industry is an important reason for Europe-wide prosperity. Trade and transport routes are reliably mastered and therefore also stand for global economic networking. However, logistics and transport not only cause prosperity, but also CO2. With a share of 23 percent of global CO2 emissions, the transport and logistics sector bears a special responsibility in the fight against climate change (IPCC, Working Group III Report, May 2007).
Today’s linear economy following the ‘take-make-use-dispose’ model has led to a throwaway society, where product life cycles are short, and replacement is often cheaper than reuse or repair. While recycling efforts can generate good feelings, that alone will not make a dent in the volume of non-renewable natural resources consumed and discarded.
