Logistics consists of the planning, organisation, management, execution and control of freight transport operations. As such, it is a key contributor to climate change.
The application of Green Logistics principles aims to achieve optimum performance expressed in cost, time or energy savings, thus reducing the negative environmental impacts of logistics (such as greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, noise, vibration and accidents) throughout a range of interventions along the chain.
By attending the Mastering Green Logistics training course, you will be introduced to the green logistics. You will examine the environmental, financial, and social impacts of logistics and procurement operations at a local and global scale, and learn why these need to be minimised.
You will have the opportunity to explore the key policies and laws regulating supply chain functions that aim to protect the environment. You will also be introduced to the methods that assess the environmental performance of supply chains, in order to improve current practices and monitor progress.
At the end of the Mastering Green Logistics Training Course, you will be able to:
Assess the environmental consequences of logistics and understand how to deal with them.
Understand ways of reducing the externalities and achieve a more sustainable balance between economic, environmental and social objectives.
