Green Supply Chain Management: Retail Chains and Consumer Product Goods - A Canadian Perspective


Industry Canada




This report is based on a collaborative undertaking by the Supply Chain & Logistics Association Canada (SCL), the Retail Council of Canada (RCC) and Industry Canada's Service Industries and Consumer Products Branch. The SCL research committee and the RCC defined industry needs, drivers, and metrics and offered valuable insights from an industry perspective. By using SCL's 2008 Green Supply Chain Survey (1165 business entities which included more than 170 Canadian retail chains, 220 CPG manufacturers, and over 170 logistics and transportation service providers that serve CPG customers), and by applying unique economic models developed in-house, Industry Canada provided the overall analysis and brought together all the components needed to produce a Green Supply Chain Management report for Canada's Retail and Consumer Products sector.
