Tools Sustainable supply chain

The brief introductory information are designed to help you start learning about “sustainable supply chain management”.

The tool “Steps in the process and Starter-Kit” offers companies guidance on independently formulating important first milestones on their path to sustainable supply chain management. The Starter Kit has a modular structure. There are three phases in total, which encompass self-contained working steps that each lead to the achievement of a milestone. Companies can use eight worksheets to help them independently implement the step in the process.

The present guidelines address the selection of sustainability criteria and their integration into the existing supplier evaluation system.

The following list offers an overview of practical measures to design and optimize a sustainable supply chain.
