What is supply chain sustainability?

Sustainability (def.): the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level

A sustainable supply chain is an ecosystem working in harmony to maintain a certain level of safety, compliance, and risk management. No small feat for large, complex supply chains. To create a truly sustainable supply chain, each stakeholder has to work in unison. If one piece is out of place — prequalification, training, reporting, anything — the system begins to fall apart.
