Aberdeen Group has published a new study that documents the practices of 177 companies in strategic supply chain planning. The report  finds that sustainable supply chain management and sustainable risk management are two of the top three areas needing improvement in their organizations for one-third of the respondents. 76 percent of respondents state that they have incorporated sustainability criteria into some or all of their supply chain management processes. The Report highlights the growing importance of establishing sustainability initiatives across the end-to-end supply chain.
