Book Description

A Roadmap to Green Supply Chains: Using Supply Chain Archaeology and Big Data Analytics by Kevin Lyons explores the relationship between the sustainability movement and effective, efficient green supply chains. It provides a guide for supply chain professionals, as well as government officials, corporate executives, and institutional leaders on how to direct their purchasing power so that they source products that not only fill the needs of their organizations, but also contribute to the health and well-being of the planet.


The author, Dr. Kevin Lyons, Ph.D., combined his experiences as the Chief Procurement Officer at Rutgers University with his own unique supply chain archaeology. His archaeological research involved sifting through garbage dumps where he examined the discarded products he procured for the university. Working backwards, he developed systems and techniques for making sure sustainable products entered the supply chain from the start. Once they no longer served their intended purpose, they were recycled or reused.
