Reasons to review your supply chain
Friday 2nd August, 2019
With carbon pricing and taxes coming into play, taking your entire supply chain into account is a good exercise to see how costs in your supply chain may escalate over the next few years.
Your business could play a meaningful part in encouraging suppliers, as well as customers, to also start reducing their emissions. You might be pleasantly surprised to find that many local suppliers have already realised that it is necessary for them to adapt to this if they want to continue being part of your supply chain.
Constantly evaluating and assessing your supply chain and exploring how you could make improvements will encourage innovation in product design. This includes examples such as changing product design for more efficient product distribution or use, allowing the company to improve the energy efficiency of products, altering the packaging and so on.
