Harnessing New Technologies for Supply Chain Sustainability

Wednesday October 25, 4:15 pm-5:15 pm

Supply chains are digitizing, and the pace is accelerating. Companies are increasingly using new technologies to make their supply chains more efficient and cost effective, to cut out inventory and lead times, and to respond directly to consumer demands. But what about sustainability? In this session, we’ll explore the tech trends shaping supply chains and discuss how to ensure that sustainability doesn’t get left behind, along with what priorities and topics these technologies are best suited to impact and where there is a need for innovation. Participants will glean insights on opportunities to digitize sustainability information, how to use machine learning to gain more visibility into supply chains, and how to work with supply chain architects to incorporate sustainability into design, along with the internet of things and automation.
