The bulk of the ecological footprint of most organisations is in their supply chain – and they will be held responsible for that footprint – so this session will look at effective approaches to reducing that footprint. Contents include:

• The big picture: Supply chain impacts and issues
• The business case for tackling the supply chain
• Basics techniques: policy, questionnaires, rating suppliers, transparency & traceability, outcomes based and forward commitment procurement
• Intermediate techniques: collaboration, industrial symbiosis, eco-design
• Advanced techniques: choice editing, new business models, building a new supply chain
