NEW DELHI, India, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

HexaGreen to host 'Sustainable SCM & Logistics Summit' on May 24, 2013 in Mumbai

The answer to the challenges Indian is facing, is to address them proactively through sustainable SCM & Logistics practices.  With the new Companies Bill making more emphasis towards corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities, 'sustainability' is bound to become, a corporate objective and strategy for companies involved in SCM & Logistics. Increased consumer awareness and media coverage means the supply chain function is now more visible and important than ever. Socially and environmentally responsible supply chain management can significantly improve both corporate and operational performance.

While sustainable supply chain objectives are becoming more crucial, the emphasis on value for money, bottom line, risk, delivery times and flexibility are not diminishing. Thus, how the supplier prioritizes between competing demands from buyers while managing risks and how we can map the SCM & Logistics becomes crucial, under the current Indian conditions, where parts of SCM are often outsourced.

HexaGreen, in its effort to assist the SCM community to map their carbon footprints and chart out a sustainable, energy efficient and low-carbon logistics, is hosting 'Sustainable SCM & Logistics Summit' on May 24, 2013 in Mumbai.

The knowledge workshop will present a clear idea of where the biggest inefficiencies lie and real, practical steps that can be taken to make improvements across supply chain & Logistics.
