Shanghai Expo – Green Supply Chains
While showcasing the trade, industrial and transportation capabilities of the nations of the world, Shanghai Expo has scored another
hit. Millions of visitors from around the world have flocked to this great city to visit the miracle of modern commerce.
What they find encouraging is the emphasis on green and environmental consciousness all through the expo. Aligned with the expo are the trade and cultural exhibitions, talks and discussions bringing in experts from around the world to discuss topics of high interest to the eclectic mix of visitors to this great city called ‘The Pearl of the Orient’.
Recently, the city hosted a discussion on Green Supply Chains bringing in experts from as far afield as Australia, UK, Singapore and Malaysia.
Speaking at the forum, Mr. Vivek Sood, Managing Director of Global Supply Chain Group, a strategy consulting and supply chain management services firm headquartered in Sydney, said ‘while Europe is no doubt the clear leader in the race towards Green Supply Chains’, China is making massive progress in this field. At this rate I would not be surprised to see that China will surpass Europe in 10-15 years, if they continue to lay emphasis on Green Supply Chain at the highest level of corporate and governmental policy making’.
He also emphasized that while most corporations wait for new regulations before they make moves towards Green Supply Chains, the clear winners have a deliberate strategy to make their supply chains green and save massive costs at the same time.
The large audience enthusiastically endorsed Mr. Sood’s comments and asked a large number of questions about the techniques of Green Supply Chain. Mr. Sood not only encouraged an open discussion on the topic but also invited audience to either write to him or read the book ‘Green Supply Chains – An Action Manifesto’ which is co-authored by him and is available at most good book stores and online.
