70% of Supply Chain Execs Say Environment More Important
Environmental issues will become more important to the supply chain over the next three years, say about 70 percent of supply chain professionals in a recent survey.
About 20 percent expect the importance of the environment to remain the same, and 2 percent expect it to decline, according to the North American Supply Chain Carbon & Sustainability report (PDF download, registration required).
About 57 percent of respondents to the Eyefortransport study expect their environmental initiatives to return financial and public relations dividends, while less than 10 percent expect no return on their investment.
Nearly 80 percent of respondents were aware of the EPA Smartway Program, while 90 percent were aware of the concept of carbon offsets. Just more than 60 percent were aware of the Carbon Disclosure Project.
The survey was conducted in August, with more than 130 supply chain professionals responding. About 38 percent of respondents were in the transportation/logistics sector, with 9 percent in retail/CPG and 6 percent in food.
