CASE STUDY DAY 2

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
