The Sustainable Supply Chain: Zero Waste, 100% Possibility

Read the full story at ThomasNet.

The zero-waste supply chain is a key element in creating a high-powered value chain. Every step of your process should increase value to the customer or boost your company’s advantage in the marketplace, and eliminating waste achieves both.

A zero-waste supply chain embraces a redesign of the resource lifecycle, evaluating every step to ensure that each product is reused or recycled. The goal? Eliminate trash sent to landfills, incinerators, or worse — the ocean. Zero-waste strategies emphasize overall waste prevention and seek to change the way materials flow through the entirety of the production pipeline.

Rethinking packaging, shifting sourcing strategy, restructuring production processes, upending distribution systems, and developing closed-loop supply chain methods are the main focuses in today’s supply chain waste-reducing efforts.
