We often promote circular economies for their sustainability and efficiency. But circular strategies are also used to manage supply chains operational risk and financial risk as well as quality and delivery times. This online meeting of the GARP Switzerland Chapter will include practical examples of how new circular strategies can help better manage risk.
To conclude the presentation the speakers will offer a closer look at circularity through an innovative logistical solution and explain the characteristics of circular supply chains which are flexible short lean connected and predictive. Those features must be combined to combat common risks present now more than ever in a VUCA world such as extreme price volatilities reduced budgets supply/demand challenges port issues emissions commitments and rapid technological disruptions. The meeting will conclude with a Q&A session.
