Abstract

Companies today face a variety of challenges and opportunities when considering investing in the environmental sustainability of their business. Compared to large companies, small and medium sized businesses do not have the resources available to leverage for consultants or invest in capital intensive projects. Therefore, Green Plus has developed the online Environmental Help Desk with the Green Supply Chain Information tool. In developing the tool, we focused on the transportation and warehousing industry. Through our research and analysis, companies may use the Green Supply Chain Information tool to better guide their decisions by finding out the major issues in their field, what industry leaders are doing, the resources and certifications available, costs and benefits of certain practices, and the stages of sustainable progress for a company.
