RMIT Logistics and Supply Chain Management forum - Agricultural Supply Chains: Handling Green Pressures

Event overview

Many Vietnamese companies lost their orders to competitors due to slow green commitments. Agricultural and food processing firms face increasing pressures from customers, suppliers, and competitors to implement environmental management systems and certification programs to ensure quality and competitive advantage. However, pursuing green certification does not automatically guarantee all sustainable measures. How companies can transform and develop capability in meeting these green requirements becomes essential for competitiveness.

This forum provides best practices and evidence that certification and environmental collaboration within the supply chains are vital to meeting new green consumer segments. Participants in this forum can interact with industry partners and experts from international agencies in enhancing their competitiveness.  

We look forward to you joining us at this exciting event!
