Sustainable operations

The course is a roadmap for implementing the principles of sustainable operations (procurement, distributions, manufacturing etc) in your company. It enables you to define the indicators in your organisation and define policy for the supply chain. The indicators such as climate change, human rights and others are considered while developing the sustainable operations matrix. The short term and long term financial implications of developing a sustainable supply chain in order to achieve a circular economy in your company can be measured in numbers and presented to the shareholders, investors and the board. This course would enable you to reach there.
