Nowadays, the consciousness of environment has increased for past few decades and people know about the environmental issues in the world such as greenhouse effect, global warming, use of toxic substances, and decreasing in non-replenish resources. As we know, Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) has shown up in the last few years. This ideology covers each stage in manufacturing in front to the last stage of lifecycle and from the product design to recycling activity. Besides that, Green Supply Chain Management can also be applied by other parties, such as government, industry, education and so on. After doing some research, we have found that Srivastara (2007) explained the ...view middle of the document...
Besides, eliminate or minimize waste such as energy, emissions, hazardous, and solid waste along supply chain is the idea of Green Supply Chain Management. As a more systemic and imploded strategy, Green Supply Chain Management has bring about some important up-to-date innovations that able to help organization develop “win-win” strategies in order to achieve profit and market share intent by lowering their environmental risk and impacts. In addition, it may lead to an array of benefits for the company itself, purchasing and supply process, and also for society at large by implementing greener supply initiatives. For instant, benefits for buying company include cost reduction and efficiency can be improved as the environment initiative takes out waste and excess material. Greener supply can also dedicate to a more holistic approach to managerial decision making. However, purchasing and supply process can be improved to the extent that greener supply stimulate information sharing and co-operation relationships in the supply chain.
Five Strategies Or Activities Adopted By Companies To Reduce Pollution And Waste
As all of us know gasoline or diesel we used to run vehicles emit a high amount of carbon dioxide ( CO2) which contribute to greenhouse effect. Therefore, encouraging employees to drive a fuel-efficient vehicle is one of the strategies for company to reduce pollution. Example of fuel-efficient vehicles are hybrids and electric vehicles, as well as those that run solely on alternative renewable fuel sources, will help protect the environment and keep the air clean. As choosing a car which has lower emissions than the one presently used can have a big impact on the environment, and prevent harmful greenhouse gas emissions and exhaust fumes.
Adopting a program that is called “feebate” can be one of the strategies for companies to reduce pollution and waste. Feebate is a combination or portmanteau of the words “fee” and “rebate”. The notion of a feebate program is to impose a fee on the purchase of goods with undesirable characteristics and to use the dividends earned to finance a remission to more desirable ones. For example, The United State government uses this program to give an incentive to the purchase or sale of the efficient and low- CO2 cars. By doing this, it can help government to discourage the polluting problem and inefficient ones among citizens. On the other hand, company can adopt this program among their employees too by offering some bonuses or rewards to employees who help to reduce polluted gas emission or save electricity during their shift ( Studio, B. (2014). Best Practices for Feebate Program Design and Implementation | International Council on Clean Transportation).
Thirdly, the concept of reduce, reuse and recycle are the strategies that can adopted by companies to lessen the pollution and waste in return. For reduce, company may conduct business by adopt manufacturing methods that require fewer resources...
