Victoria’s Secret is Getting Smart About Supply Chain Ethics - Press Release

Supply Chain Ethics (9780749479459)13th February 2017: Supply Chain Ethics: Using CSR and Sustainability to Create Competitive Advantage

Following the steps of brands like Stella McCartney and Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret has pledged to be more transparent about their efforts to ensure their wood-based products are ethically sourced, Thomson Reuters reports. The lingerie giant’s parent company, L Brands, is seeking to eliminate wood pulp from its supply chain, a product that can threaten forests and indigenous populations. L Brands has also pledged to notify the public of their efforts and progress.

Traditional supply chains focus on sourcing products from the lowest possible cost suppliers, which puts them at risk of failing to exploit their full potential and of damaging their reputation with consumers. The latest title from award-winning author John Manners-BellSupply Chain Ethics: Using CSR and Sustainability to Create Competitive Advantage, will provide senior supply chain, operations and manufacturing managers with the tools to mitigate these risks.

Publishing on 3 March, 2017, this new title outlines supply chain best practice employed by global manufacturers, retailers and logistics companies. This invaluable new book will provide strategies and examples to keep narrow supply chain strategies from inevitably failing.

Gwyneth Fries, Senior Sustainability Advisor of Forum for the Future, complimented the author and the book, saying ‘Manners-Bell demonstrates how ethics in supply chains go far beyond reducing our carbon footprint to harnessing new value from systemic transformation, from product design to waste disposal. A must-read for any leader seeking success in a low-carbon future’.
