What world will we leave to our children? And to their children? Young people have asked us insistently about the consequences of these ever increasing flows of goods. With this manifesto, we hope to give them the beginning of an answer.
Why are there so many trucks on the road?
Why are there so many vans in the city, traffic jams andpolluted air that makes children sick?
Why do these vehicles emit so much carbon and contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming?
What are the alternatives to polluting fuels?
Can we reduce the impact of planes, boats and trucks?
What about all that excessive and oversized packaging that takes up so much space and also has to be transported?
Why do we have to buy far away what can be produced nearby?
How to buy nearby?
Why so much technological delay in this field to bring solutions in the interest of all?
What about the people? What are their working conditions in the warehouses?
Will they be well trained for the jobs of tomorrow?
Mobility Tribune: Managing operations for a better world with SupplyChain4Good
The entire supply chain, from the design of a product to its delivery, to its destruction or recycling, is mobilized to resolve these important issues.
The shift towards a more sustainable mode of production is here. All indicators point to the urgency to act. We want to be an active part of this change, and we are committed to it. The Supply Chain is a true nervous system of the economy, and is at the heart of all strategic decisions in terms of sustainable development. Each of our choices has consequences, and none of them are made without a clear conscience: resource-saving procurement, less polluting transport, risk anticipation. Having a positive impact on society as a whole is our responsibility.
France Supply Chain already federates 450 companies of all sizes (large groups, ETI, SME) and all sectors of activity. It is not limited to France. Since 2020, France Supply Chain International has been leading several chapters in the world: Africa, North and South America, Asia and of course, Europe.
We have therefore created the SupplyChain4Good community in order to federate the energy of all those who want to accelerate the transition to a better Supply Chain for the planet, the people and the performance of companies.
To this end, we have formalized in this document the vision of a more sustainable Supply Chain by 2030. We also highlight remarkable initiatives. They show that it is possible to move forward: public authorities, companies, associations, let's experiment and test together!
Only collective action will enable us to succeed. After the commitment of the states comes that of the companies. This approach is fully in line with the European Union's Green Deal, an action plan encouraging the circular economy, the restoration of biodiversity and the drastic reduction of pollution.
