Each year, over 1,000 of the world’s brightest minds come together to network and collaborate at GreenBiz, the premier conference for business and nonprofit leaders in the sustainability space. This year we’re especially excited about GreenBiz because it means the launch of a major collaboration between Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and Shelton Group: the EDF Supply Chain Solutions Center.
The Supply Chain Solutions Center is a new website created by Shelton Group and EDF, and created for supply chain professionals to help them accelerate their sustainability goals. Affectionately dubbed the “Spotify for Supply Chains,” the platform removes the complexity of keeping up with sustainability and supply chain best practices by curating hundreds of articles, reports, guides, templates, case studies and other materials based on level of experience and areas of interest. In minutes, users can create their own tailored profile, select the issues most applicable to their business from among six key areas – agriculture, energy, chemicals, waste, forests and freight – and receive a steady stream of supply chain news, sustainability solutions, connections to expert organizations and templates for building the path forward.
Studies show supply chains are the biggest environmental problem for companies nowadays – particularly in the consumer packaged goods industry. More than ever, sustainability professionals recognize that meeting corporate sustainability goals requires reducing impact across entire value chains. EDF’s Supply Chain Solutions Center streamlines the process of information collection so that you can better achieve your supply chain sustainability goals – no matter where you are on the journey.
