Summary

The supply chain acts as the central nervous system by which the entire business will live and act in lockstep. By linking sustainability strategy with supply chain activities, the course of the business is set for the foreseeable future. However, while these strategies make for good publicity, they are ineffective if not connected to guiding operating principles and in-the-moment decision making.
