Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Why read this book? 
Learn the origin and current spark to the 2009 North American Green Supply Chain revolution, the initial supply management role, operational definitions and green supply chain measurement tools that will impact the CPO organization and our global supply base. 
This text is concise & informative. We intend to present many scientific concepts into standard supply management terminology. This is a first read for the Supply Chain and CPO organization before addressing carbon footprint initiatives.

From the Inside Flap

During our travels and many conversations with a number of supply, sourcing, procurement, buying, & purchasing management professionals we have found that there is tons of misconception about sustainability, environmental, carbon emissions, and green. In addition, during numerous broader based supply chain events we found that supply chain leaders did not understand the CPO's role in this world of carbon footprint and supply chain energy demand management. This text is one of the first steps to address both misconceptions.
Many have said that Lexicon is a fancy word for glossary. This text will avoid fancy words and as we intend to translate technical content to down to basic green supply management concepts. This is a first edition and is a living document. As the Federal Government, 3rd Party and Industry develop solutions to key topics such as carbon traded off; sequestion and verification procedures expect additional updates to this text. With other ground-breaking the current green supply chain revolution is in its infancy.
It has commonly known that the CPO organization's has the greatest influence on the Corporate Carbon Footprint. Our material will provide tactical supply chain measurement guidance, again, a very close second step in the green supply chain revolution, to addressing corporation's impact, on our land, air, water, noise resources and the carbon footprint.
