The Green Supply Chain - new threat or opportunity for Irish suppliers?
Over the last couple of years business leaders are placing an increasing priority on improving their environmental credentials.
There is very good reason for this - being green is good for business.
Green initiatives have been proven to add significant value, improve brand image and in many cases, reduce costs.
BearingPoint's 2010/11 survey of over 600 European business identified that two thirds of European companies surveyed now consider integrating environmental sustainability into their business as a strategic priority.
Business leaders are no longer solely looking internally at their environmental policies but extending their view to consider the environmental impact of their suppliers and distribution networks.
Having initially implemented green initiatives to achieve compliance with environmental regulations, organisations are now acutely aware of increased benefits achieved from environmentally sustainable practices.
