About the webinar

Sustainable  refers to supply chain management practices and strategies that reduce the environmental footprint and energy consumption of the distribution of loads. This clean logistics focuses on material handling and waste management, the selection of suitable containers and containers and their transport (Rodrigue, et al, 2017). In addition to the aforementioned official measures, many companies and referents from the private sector incorporate improvements with the double objective of reducing their energy consumption costs and offering transport and logistics services compatible with the care and conservation of the environment.

Taking this into account, the community of practice on sustainable logistics begins, which is a space of continuous collaboration to allow peer learning, provide a deeper understanding of the options available to overcome barriers and access technical assistance. The exchange will allow us to know the different scales of application of this set of measures, starting with the regional and national scale, to then focus the analysis on urban spaces and problems, in the following meetings.

In this webinar we will synthesize the growth trends of transport, the concepts related to clean logistics -or green- and we will explore a national sustainable transport plan as an applied case and trigger for the first debate activity of the community.

The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat:
