Many companies are already on a lean journey, but has your company started its green journey?

Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with buying environmentally-friendly products, which has created a ripple effect throughout the supply chain. We're not just competing on cost and lead time anymore. Sustainable business practices are increasingly becoming an order qualifier, and to be the order winner your company needs to outperform the competition.

Sustainability is also a growing concern for employees. In today's labour market, attracting and retaining employees is challenging. Your company's sustainability performance is just as important as what you offer for salary and benefits.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What it means to be sustainable.
  • The five spheres of environmental sustainability.
  • How to establish a benchmark of your company's current performance.
  • Where to focus your improvement efforts.
