Sustainable Agri-food Supply Chain Management
Sustainable agri-food chains should operate in a manner that exploits and optimizes the synergies among environmental protection, social fairness and economic growth. Today, societal stakeholders demand the management of a sustainable agri-food supply chain to incorporate a diverse and often inter-related set of issues relating to sustainable development. There is surmounting global pressure for corporate responsibility to transcend product quality and extend to areas of labor standards, health and safety, environmental sustainability, non-financial accounting and reporting, procurement, supplier relations, product lifecycles and environmental practices. Principles of accountability, transparency and stakeholder engagement are highly relevant to sustainable agri-food supply chain management. Sustainable agri-food supply chain management covers the concept of sustainability from the field to the supply chain level by providing learners with tools for improving their company’s competitiveness, sustainability and responsibility towards stakeholder expectations.
