  • Experience Supply Chain decision trade offs between classical Return on Investment and Sustainability metrics.
  • Understand how Supply Chain Management can improve sustainably :
  • within the walls of a company through well-coordinated sourcing, manufacturing, distribution, and planning decisions
  • across different companies by setting-up a resilient strategy to cope with Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) chains of supply
  • Deep dive into the major drivers of greenhouse gas emissions in the industry
  • Link the different possible sources of energy, such as hydrogen, with their respective cost, and CO2 emissions on different time horizons
  • Discover the key aspects of the most widely used sustainability frameworks


Business executives that want to have a significant impact on the sustainability of their organisation, and understand the possible trade-offs with profitability.
