What is a sustainable supply chain?

A sustainable supply chain is part of what’s known as corporate social responsibility (CSR). It's a term we hear more and more often in every industry. In this article, we explain what impact improved sustainability can have on business practice and how we incorporate it within HB RTS.

What is sustainable business?

A socially responsible company takes into account the direct and indirect impact its actions have on the climate, human rights, and all other social and ethical aspects of the economy

As a company, you are part of a larger whole. Every choice has an impact on people inside and outside the company, and also on the environment and the local economy. Sustainable business starts with being aware of your place within this whole. The next step is making sustainable choices to reduce any negative impacts on society and the climate, and thus contribute to a better world.

Why aim for a sustainable supply chain?

Corporate social responsibility is very important in today's society. Everyone has to contribute and companies in particular are expected to constantly work on making sustainable choices.

Sustainable practices have benefits not only for society as a whole but also for your company. One of the ways to reduce your negative impact on the environment is to reduce transport kilometers. This is better for the environment, but it also saves you a lot of money. In the end, it’s a win-win situation

HB RTS helps you to reduce transport kilometers, partly thanks to our strategic locations.

Another example is the use of sustainable packaging such as plastic crates and pallets. These have a long lifespan and are ultimately cheaper than one-way packaging such as boxes and plastic bags. With this choice, you also contribute to a healthier planet, and you reduce costs.

Is sustainable business compulsory?

Corporate social responsibility is not mandatory. Sometimes there are guidelines within a specific industry that must be followed to ensure that companies automatically make the right choices and start doing business sustainably.

Although it is not mandatory, we can only advise you to delve into the different ways of sustainable business.
