Due to the impact of environmental issues, consumers will be asking the companies about how green is the manufacturing and supply chain of the products. The carbon footprint a product makes during the manufacturing unit to the end user plays a critical role in making the supply chain environment-friendly. The companies have also given importance to making the products green along with making it profitable. It is also true that consumers prefer environment-friendly products and this establishes a link between environmental factors and profits.
There are several ways through which companies can cut the costs by reducing the environmental impact of the products. A complete re evaluation is needed for the supply chain process which include purchasing planning and managing the materials. The Supply Chain Executives also should be taught to make the process of logistics go along with the green policies of the company. Lowering the cost for waste disposals occur during the supply chain process also cuts the cost of the process.
