Outcomes of the EPA/NSP/AIChE Sustainable Supply Chain Design Workshop
- Type: Archived Webinar
The Sustainable Supply Chain Design (SSCD) Scientific Workshop, sponsored by EPA, NSF and the AIChE Center for Sustainable Technology Practices, was held in mid-September of 2011. This webinar presents an overview of the outcomes of the Workshop.
The purpose of the Workshop was to foster collaboration and promote the development of a research community focused on sustainability and supply chains. This was accomplished by bringing together a diverse group of researchers and other professionals with experience relevant to sustainable supply chain design.
From experts with experience working within a broad, systems perspective, an understanding of the key shortcomings of current practices was elicited. The Workshop also identified practical ways in which new or repurposed approaches could be integrated within existing frameworks.
In the case of experts with experience working within a narrower focus, the participants worked together to understand how these approaches could be integrated within existing frameworks or larger-scale models.
The Workshop also explored opportunities for applying discipline-specific approaches to other problems related to the design of sustainable supply chains.
