Sustainable Supply Chain Management: Education, Entertainment, Hotels, Temporary Help, and Publishing
h3. Executive Summary
p. With increased public attention to sustainability, companies are increasingly developing policies and goals related to green practices. For some companies the movement towards sustainability has accel- erated in the past few years. Sustainable practices are extending beyond the company to its vendors. Many companies have stated policies recommending or even requiring its suppliers meet minimum sustainability standards. Labor and human rights form another key element of supplier selection.

Such reporting mechanisms as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Newsweek Green Rankings document and rate companies based on their sustainable practices. This added visibility has encouraged companies to take sustainability issues seriously as they jostle for higher rankings.
