In today’s economy, there is increasing emphasis on supply chain management as being vital to a long-term, successful business strategy. Over the past decade, sustainable sourcing and procurement, environmentally responsible logistics, and ‘Green’ Supply Chain Management (GSCM) have increasingly gained traction as essential business management tools, directly linked to business value. We are seeing major shifts in business thinking to account for the environment, to create positive social impact and to drive innovation – from material sourcing through product design, manufacturing, distribution, delivery and end-of-life management.
Is your company part of this sweeping change? Sustainable Brands wants to hear your story! Please send content ideas to the email addresses below.
Our readers are business leaders and strategists seeking information about how others are innovating and improving business practices through embedding resilience and sustainability into business strategy and operational practices. Sustainable Brands is seeking contributors that can offer insights and ideas that might be applied across market sectors. Contributions should offer best practices, innovative approaches, case studies, tools and/or resources that offer our readers strategic and “boots on the ground” value.
We evaluate submissions based on currency and relevance of the examples or ideas presented, balance of perspective, strength and clarity of content and delivered principles. See our Writers’ Handbook for further guidelines.
Written, audio or video perspectives on management concepts and actions across any aspect of your supply chain. Certainly descriptions of measurable improvements are desired but equally important is the struggle with supply chains — planning, values, metrics, collaboration, progress and failures. At the heart of all work in our supply chains is our shared effort to manage what we don’t own and don’t fully control.
If written, please edit to 600 to 1000 words. Shorter submissions will also be considered.
Supply chain managers, directors and VPs, CFOs, COOs and sustainability professionals at all levels in companies, governments, academic institutions and NGOs. Suppliers to western brands are especially encouraged to submit their experience and efforts in supply chain leadership.
Share a one-paragraph to one-page overview describing your insights, initiatives, case studies, etc.
Article ideas and submissions will be accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year; email our editors at the addresses below.
All examples of supply chain management are welcome. The vast majority of these efforts contain an element of sustainability, so it is critical that it be highlighted in the submittal:
