Conference April 29 to Explore Social and Environmental Responsibility in the Supply Chain

More than 150 supply chain management experts, practitioners, and policy makers will gather at a conference April 29 at the Stanford Graduate School of business to exchange best practices for sustainable supply chains.

The conference, "Collaboration for the Greater Good: Social and Environmental Responsibility in the Global Supply Chain," is presented by the Global Supply Chain Management Forum and the Center for Social Innovation at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, in partnership with AMR Research.

"We've reached an important threshold in global supply chain management," said Hau Lee, director of the Global Supply Chain Management Forum and the Thoma Professor of Operations, Information, and Technology. "In recent years companies at the forefront of social and environmental responsibility have made tremendous strides in strengthening their own infrastructure and internal processes, and now the time has come to work together to achieve greater results, not only for the greater good: smart organizations are themselves finding significant payoffs in collaboration."
