Video: Sustainable Supply Chain Course: IOM 599


This course aims to provide students with an understanding of the sustainability challenges and opportunities facing supply chains today. The course examines some of the factors that are contributing to the adoption of sustainability strategies, such as legislations that are penalizing negative environmental and social impacts, and society's expectations of business in terms of health, human rights, and the environment.

The supply chains today cannot be concerned only with creating shareholder value; their performance is also measured in terms of social, environmental and economic impact. The main topics covered in the course are sustainability concepts and frameworks, environmental legislation, sustainable design of products, renewable energy, closed-loop supply chains, facilities, locations, and transportation decisions, supplier management, and strategic sustainability implementation. The class format includes lectures, case discussions, guest speakers, and movie clips.
