From 14 November 2017 to 15 November 2017 | Business School Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland

Have you ever wondered about the business benefits of your company building sustainable supply chains more strategically?

Do you already know how a more strategic sustainable supply chain can:

  • • provide your company with a key competitive advantage?
  • • help build brands and reputation, foster supplier loyalty and reduce costs for all operators in the chain?
  • • involve your entire value chain in sustainable sourcing?

Discover the answers to these questions and many more by joining the 'Building Sustainable Value Chains' Master class.
