The Emergence of Green Supply Chains: A Balancing Act Keynote address by Prof. SC Lenny Koh

Professor SC Lenny Koh recently delivered a keynote address at the International Conference on Digital Factory (ICDF2008) Coimbatore, India.  The speech entitled “The Emergence of Green Supply Chains: A Balancing Act” emphasising the significant impact of climate change, and how businesses and supply chains reflect on this pressing issue. Action could be undertaken and improvement could be made on eco-logistics, eco-production, eco-design, eco-resources, and eco-procurement at the companies, industries and supply chains levels. This will not be sufficient if appropriate leadership, policy, regulation and standards are in place.
Prof Koh said: “South India is an interesting and challenging region; there are a lot of business opportunities for high quality HE and training provision and a significant shortfall of skilled workers. Attracting foreign investment into India is essential for its success but serious barriers of infrastructure and road conditions will need to be addressed first.”
Professor Koh is Director of the Executive MBA Programme and Founder and Director of Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LSCM) Research Group.
