grappling with the elements required to change an organization's supply chain

"Having worked with Stuart Emmett on other ground breaking books, I can
empathically say that this book written with Vivek Sood is another one in the
same mould. This enjoyable book not only covers a topic that is critically
relevant for every individual, but also provides a practical road map for a
green supply chain strategy. Strongly recommended, it is a book of it time."

"After co-creating the supply chain management methodology in 1979, I have
remained at the forefront of this field for the last 30 years by continually
pushing the boundaries of thoughts and applications in Supply Chain Management.
But, during all this time, nothing has excited me as much as our current
endeavor on Green Supply Chains . It is the need of the moment, resonating in
all directions. What is more important, it makes perfect commercial sense. This
book by Vivek Sood and Stuart Emmett is a big step in furthering that
discussion. It should be on the bookshelf of every progressive manager."
— Dr Wolfgang Partsch, Global Supply Chain Group, Munich, Germany
"…As supply chains have become more visible to people around the world, and at
the same time more global, questions about their impact on the environment and
global sustainability have increased. People who care about our Planet often
wonder what are the adverse impacts of transporting goods thousands of
miles...goods that are often produced in manufacturing plants that are not
environmentally friendly...and then packaged in what becomes waste. So,
companies and governments worldwide have begun to address the questions. The
authors have addressed the questions in an insightful manner. They have
analyzed the supply chain processes, presented new ideas, and have backed these
up with solid case examples from leading companies. The book is a must read for
anyone who manages a supply chain, cares about the environment, and seeks
actionable ideas for 'going green'."
— Gene Tyndall, Executive Vice President, Global Tompkins International
"This book treats the 'Next Generation' Supply Chain in a phenomenal way. It

sustainability for our Planet."
