Welcome to the course

A very warm welcome to Sustainability and Green Logistics.

In this course, we explore the principles of sustainability and understand how these can be integrated into logistics and procurement practices.

We look forward to exploring these topics with you over the next two weeks, as well as providing you with tools to understand how you might improve your own area of practice.

This week, we will look at:

  • The concept of sustainability
  • Legislation
  • Supply chain and green logistics

This short course is the introductory two-week course for a program in Sustainability and Green Logistics, which forms part of the MSc Global Logistics online degree at Coventry University delivered on FutureLearn.
