Operations: The heart of sustainability?

Operations: The heart of sustainability?

Sustainability is here to stay. And operations are here to contribute.

"Sustainability" is high on the agenda of many firms – in spite of, or maybe even due to, the current pandemic. There might even be a growing mindset that the "new normal" must include a higher focus on even more sustainable behavior.

Sustainability is more than offering environmentally friendly products – it touches all functions of a firm and its supply network in three dimensions: Environmental, social and corporate governance aspects. ESG, for short.

Our global webinar for operations decision makers!

Specifically, core operations functions like R&D (product design, circular economy), procurement & SCM (transparency on and governing the supply chain, transportation emissions), production (emissions, pollution, waste), and service (repairs/recycling) must contribute significantly.

In our exclusive webinar, we will introduce a holistic view on sustainability and discuss inspiring examples on how companies have changed their operations.
