About this Module: Enhancing Sustainable Supply Chains

Sustainability in supply chain management has become an important part of supply chain design. Improving environmental, social, and governance performance throughout supply chains ensures that companies will guarantee the long-term viability of their business and secure their social license to operate. At the same time, enhancing sustainable supply chains ensures regulatory compliance with sustainability laws and regulations and international principles for sustainable business conduct.

In Part 1 of Module 3 of the Sustainability Management Training Series, we will look more closely at sustainable supply chain design in light of global sustainability regulations that are creating the need for changes and rethinking international supply chains, supplier engagement, and collaboration. We will explore ISO 26000:2010 Guidance on Social Responsibility as a voluntary standard aiming at implementing social responsibility principles into business operations and ISO 20400:2017 as a guideline for integrating sustainability within procurement.

In Part 2 of Module 3, we will focus on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) across the supply chain. With more and more commitment and regulatory pressure on reducing GHG emissions globally, national regulators and investors are pushing businesses to disclose their Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. The focus will be on Scope 3 emissions resulting out of the supply chain, as more than 70% of CO2e emissions originate from the upstream supply chain.

Topics (Part 1):

  • Impacting supply chains: current global sustainability regulations
  • Identifying your strategic suppliers: supply chain mapping and supply chain prioritisation
  • Creating a supplier engagement plan: Collaboration to reduce negative impact and sharing opportunities

Topics (Part 2):

  • The importance of measuring GHG emissions throughout the supply chain
  • Explaining GHG emissions (CO2 and CO2 equivalents)
  • Introducing GHG Protocol: the standard for GHG accounting and management
  • Measuring and reporting Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions
  • Your carbon footprint: collect data, calculate, verify, and improve
