Webinar: Supply Chain Resource Sustainability and Decision Science
Friday 24th September 2021
The ‘Blue skies, green future’ webinar series presents ideas and innovation to spark discussion on the topic of transformation and sustainability within the foundation industries.
Webinars will take place each month and with novel ideas and concepts presented by a world-leading researcher in the field. During the session, speakers will discuss a technology which if implemented could transform the foundation industries. The goal is to encourage the audience to consider ways in which their own industry can utilise and embed innovation.
This session will be a presentation from Professor Lenny Koh on supply chain resource sustainability and decision science.
Resource sustainable supply chains compete, not just supply, chains. A resource sustainable supply chain comprises availability and resiliency of resources including materials, time, money, data/intelligence, labour, talent, energy, machines, technology and ecosystem. This talk focuses on the advances in multi-scale decision science for a resource sustainable supply chain. It will present cases at international, national, regional, organisational, product and material scales. Environmental, economic, industry and policy relevance and impacts will be highlighted.
Professor Lenny Koh, BEng (Hons), PhD, FRSA, is a Chair Professor in Operations Management, Founders and Directors of the Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LSCM) Research Centre at the Management School & the Faculty’s Centre for Energy, Environment and Sustainability (CEES), at The University of Sheffield. She is also the co-founder of Supply Chain Management and Information Systems (SCMIS) Consortium, a global network of leading academic and practitioners driving research and knowledge exchange on supply chain and information systems. A world leading mind recognised amongst FRSs and Nobel Laureates within the University, Professor Koh is a Senior Chair Professor, an internationally renowned and established authority in supply chain especially on low carbon and sustainability, with a high H-index (World number 2) and high research income generation in her discipline internationally. She is active in leading a 2022 Futures initiative advancing resource efficiency and supply chain disciplines, navigating a new translational model for connecting invention/basic science at lower TRL to higher TRL
