Triple E Supply Chain
The Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM), a nonprofit supply chain association, released new standards for instituting a "triple E" supply chain—one that is ethical, ecological, and economical. Companies that meet the standards are eligible to apply for the ASCM Enterprise Certification, an industry benchmark demonstrating a commitment to clean supply chains.
"More than ever, consumers want to know that the products they buy are not only economically sound but also manufactured through practices that are ethically and environmentally conscious," explains Abe Eshkenazi, CEO of ASCM. "Building triple E supply chains provides innovative companies with another platform to achieve competitive advantage, grow their market share, and make the world better through supply chain all at the same time."
With the certificate's unbiased standards, companies can hold each other accountable and commit to building a circular economy.
