CASE STUDY / DAY 1

Building Sustainable Supply Chain & Logistics

Covestro is fully committed to the circular economy and anchors this principle within the entire company. The supply chain & logistics organisation plays a significant role in reducing the carbon footprint – both via own activities and through partners and suppliers. This keynote will outline elements of sustainability introduced in the supply chain and how they contribute to Covestro’s long-term goal of becoming fully circular.

  • Covestro’s circular economy vision
  • Focus areas for the circular economy
  • Alternative logistics strategies
  • Digital tools as enablers of sustainability
CASE STUDY / DAY 1

Sustainability of Transport: Decarbonisation, OSC and Still Safety First

While we focus our attention squarely on the decarbonisation of the manufacturing industry, a lot of attention is going to a sustainable logistics work process. A sustainable supply chain is more than a decarbonised one. An entire industry of plastic manufacturers and plastics converters is orienting their behaviour programmes to zero emission of plastics to the environment. The programme named “Operation Clean Sweep” needs to be embedded not only in own operations but cascaded through the entire supply chain. These initiatives, CFP reduction and OCS are to be bolt-on to the equipment- , procedural- and behavioural safety programmes. The presentation will use SQAS as a corner-stone for implementation of these in the chemical supply chain and how that can be used by the individual stakeholders in their supplier selection and performance management process.

  • Operation Clean Sweep, the industry’s pledge to zero plastic spill
  • Decarbonisation of logistics for the chemical and plastics manufacturing industry
  • Safety and quality assessment for a sustainable supply chain

Enhancing Collaboration with External Partners for Reliable Performance

Communication and strong partnerships are critical to ensuring a reliable supply chain. The pandemic has tested and stretched all partnerships across the supply chain and the speaker from Bayer will shed light on how he and his team became more agile to ensure a reliable supply.

• Communication pacing and touchpoints to anticipate potential problems
• How to identify possible issues with suppliers and get commitment
• Predictive actions with suppliers to keep a reliable and steady supply

How to Prepare and Execute M&As from a Supply Chain Perspective

More and more companies are optimising their portfolio via acquisition and divestitures to remain competitive. In this presentation the speaker will share with you how they at BASF structure themselves to manage the supply chain aspects of such deals – from the due diligence phase until the final integration/separation.
