Carbon and Energy Efficient Supply Chains

October 27, 2009
Edgar Blanco, Research Director at the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics

On this presentation we will discuss the relevance, the key challenges and some approaches for measuring the energy & carbon footprint of supply chains. We will discuss the relationship with traditional supply chain objectives and some case studies on the impact on designing logistic systems. We will also illustrate how public-private partnerships could be used to overcome some of these challenges, by aligning multiple incentives, increase transparency and collaboration within the supply chain.
