Balancing efficiency demanded for supply chains with social responsibility
February 22, 2018
Supply chains present great complexity under globalization and changes in consumption styles linked to urbanization. At the same time, environmental issues, labor issues, and other social issues are cropping up in supply chains; thus companies need to improve business efficiency while facing calls to fulfill social responsibility. These demands come not only from companies but also from consumers, investors, and central governments.
Attention is now focused on creating transparent supply chains through digital technologies as a concrete measure to balance business efficiency with social responsibility. Initiatives have begun that seek to improve the sustainability of supply chains overall by making flows of goods and money, the safety of products and services, working environment, and many other factors visible.
