"After co-creating the supply chain management methodology in1979, I have remained at the forefront of this field for the last30 years by continually pushing the boundaries of thoughts andapplications in Supply Chain Management. But, during all this time,nothing has excited me as much as our current endeavor on GreenSupply Chains. It is the need of the moment, resonating in alldirections. What is more important, it makes perfect commercialsense. This book by Vivek Sood and Stuart Emmett is a big step infurthering that discussion. It should be on the bookshelf of everyprogressive manager."
