“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.

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.
