Sustainability in Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management is both an art and a science; it is a discipline focused on planning and forecasting, purchasing and product assembly, moving, storage, distribution, sales and customer service—in short, all of the activities necessary to get the right products and services into the right hands, in the right quantity, at the right time and at the right price.

An increased focus on sustainability is an integral part of Temple University’s efforts to advance the future of supply chain management education. The next generation of supply chain managers will understand that a company does not exist simply to maximize return on investment capital; other factors, including waste management and energy use, play a pivotal role in the daily functions of any company, and a successful supply chain takes the full breadth and depth of a company’s impact into consideration from the outset.
