Covering all the Bases: Sustainable Supply Chain Management in Canada

Executive Summary

Organizations operating in global supply chains present various opportunities for growth through up-skilling, employment, and local economic growth. However, when organizations fail to conduct business responsibly they contribute to a myriad of social and environmental impacts including forced labour, human poor health and safety and environmental pollution. With the global population expected to reach 9 billion people by 2030, demand for products and services will also increase.

Decision making must move beyond considering not only cost, product quality and risk but environmental and social impacts.
