BSR’s “Clean Cargo Working Group” will examine Sustainability issues at tomorrow’s one hour webinar, discussion, and Q&A. The live event will be based in San Francisco.
“Moving Beyond the Factory Gates: Partnering With the Logistics and Transportation Sector to Meet Your Sustainability Goals,” takes place on Wednesday, February 23 from 8-9 a.m. PST.
“Global companies are increasingly looking to their supply chains to meet their sustainability goals, including reduced carbon emissions and lower overall lifecycle impacts,” said Raj Sapru, BSR’s director, advisory services.
He also noted that the logistics and transportation sector sits at the center of global supply chains, providing services to retailers and manufacturers, and can be a key partner for extending your company’s sustainability beyond the factory gates.
In this webinar, BSR will explore the efforts of the Clean Cargo Working Group, a business-to-business collaboration focused on data sharing on a range of business-relevant sustainably issues in the container shipping sector. You will hear real-life examples of how global brands and logistics managers integrate Clean Cargo’s industry-leading data into transportation carbon estimates and purchasing decisions.
Joining Sapru in this discussion will be Dawn Vance, director of global infrastructure logistics sustainability, Nike Inc. and Peter Livey, head of logistics, Hyundai Merchant Marine
