Lecture Overview:

Environmental and social issues are at the forefront of many organizations’ strategic plans. Given the significant industry needs and the rapid pace of change, now is an excellent time for academic researchers to engage industrial partners in supply chain sustainability research.

This presentation will outline the topical research questions that define supply chain sustainability and its unique dimensions of industrial engagement. Using The Sustainability Consortium as an example, Dooley will demonstrate how universities are well positioned to drive pre-competitive collaboration and innovation.
