This issue of MHI Solutions focuses on sustainability and its progression in the supply chain. Consumers are becoming more interested in making environmentally friendly decisions when it comes to their buying habits and the brands to which they are loyal. Studies have found anywhere from 80-85% of consumers are more likely to buy from a company with a reputation for sustainability than from a neutral company, if their prices are equal.

Leading firms are tapping into this mindset by building more sustainability, and transparency, into their supply chains. They know that more sustainable operations will drive long-term brand loyalty and competitive advantage while having bottom line impacts on efficiency and profitability.

This issue of MHI Solutions will help provide you with the information and resources you need to address sustainability across your supply chain to improve your overall business performance.
