A company may enjoy short-term success by eliminating a particular toxic compound and substituting a safer alternative. But, as an old African proverb says, "If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." Companies are finding next-level success through increasing collaboration with non-profits, academia, government agencies, and - in particular – their suppliers. By building the right foundation for supply chain engagement you can increase the likelihood of mutual success and reduce your resource investment, but how do you begin? We’ll explore how to build the business case for supply chain sustainability along with how to overcome common challenges.
