Product + Supply Chain

Let’s go on a journey…from efficiency to reinvention

In a globalized, connected world, your supply chain is a core strategic issue. You have stakeholders all along the value chain and you need to stay one step ahead of the game – anticipating their expectations, protecting your reputation and your license to operate.

Manufacturers are under increasing global regulatory and customer demands to produce products that are less toxic and perform better environmentally. Legislation from the European Union, such as RoHS and REACH, and the United States conflict minerals requirements are proliferating to other geographies at a rapid pace. Conducting business in complex supply chains in a socially responsible way has also come into sharp focus.

We know there’s a lot at stake, but we're passionate about improving your business process. Our industry understanding can support you make efficiency gains that embed product environmental performance into your day-to-day business activities in a cost-effective manner, as well as and about leveraging gradual operational improvement in your supply chain. In a resource constrained world, you need to create more value from fewer resources.
