‘Balancing Green’: What’s the Cost of Sustainability? By: Robert J. Bowman, SupplyChainBrain | 04.13.2018 Few issues in supply-chain management are more polarizing than that of environmental sustainability. ‘Balancing Green’: What’s the Cost of Sustainability?

The debate over green supply chains often breaks down into extreme positions with no prospect for compromise. Some push for sustainability at any cost. Others argue that any green measures are a threat to jobs and corporate profits. It’s clear, though, that a more nuanced approach is necessary if companies are to make any progress on the issue at all. On this episode, we get a look at how nominally clashing viewpoints can move forward with crafting cleaner and greener global supply chains. Our guest is Yossi Sheffi, Elisha Gray II professor of engineering systems at MIT, and director of the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics. He discusses the findings of his new book, Balancing Green: When to Embrace Sustainability in a Business (and When Not To). Sheffi offers a pragmatic approach to the question, talks about the biggest risks that global companies face today, and explains how they can sustain their sustainability efforts. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
