Innovating for circular and sustainable supply chains.
Most business leaders see a pressing need to integrate sustainable practices into their supply chains, but the majority are faced with exceptionally complex decisions. The data needed to understand and better manage resources is often buried in inaccessible places, and is difficult to decode and act on.
From electronics to energy technologies, we help organizations navigate complexity at every step of the manufacturing supply chain, from extraction, through processing and refining, to assembly and design, and use and disposal. A smart combination of data analysis and systems thinking is critical.
We analyzed the supply chain and production dynamics of wind turbines and solar panels to understand whether current global supply of these metals is sufficient to meet growing renewable energy demands.
