The top green concern – waste handling

By DC Velocity Staff

Waste disposal and recycling present the number-one environmental issue facing supply chain organizations today in the opinion of nearly two-thirds of the 250 U.S. respondents to a 2008 Green Supply Chain Study.

Half of the survey participants said their company had a documented corporate sustainability plan, according to study author Stephen Bogart, a partner in the global business services practice of consulting firm CSC. Still, only 60 percent of those with a plan said they have a way of measuring the return on their investment in green initiatives.
