Looking for real-world examples of how companies are implementing sustainability and social responsibility excellence across the supply chain? Supply professionals are increasingly playing a critical role in this area and they now have an additional resource with the debut of the “Sustainability and Social Responsibility Handbook,” available from Institute for Supply Management (ISM). Written by the ISM Committee on Sustainability and Social Responsibility, the Handbook includes metrics and performance criteria, as well as unique stories from companies and organizations including Bellwether Services, Herman Miller, IBM, MeadWestvaco, RL Environmental and University of Washington.
The just-published “Sustainability and Social Responsibility Handbook” was a top seller at ISM’s 96th Annual International Supply Management Conference in Orlando, Florida. “The tremendous reception reaffirms our sense that supply chain professionals are seeking current information on sustainability and social responsibility that is relevant and provides guidance in this increasingly important arena,” says Cathy A. Rodgers, chair, ISM Committee on Sustainability and Social Responsibility and IBM vice president, Global Opportunities and Business Development. “This is exactly why the committee worked so hard over the past year gathering these key resources, company stories and related reference material into one convenient volume dedicated to this critically important topic.”
Additional resources included in the Handbook are: ISM Principles of Sustainability and Social Responsibility, ISM Standards of Ethical Supply Management Conduct, and a business case for sustainability and social responsibility. The Handbook also includes current articles from ISM publications, as well as CAPS Research benchmarking samples and a Focus Study on championing environmental supply management initiatives.
