"In this very accessible book, John Manners-Bell threads together
numerous dimensions of the supply chain and demonstrates how
embracing the complexity of 'people, planet and profit' is the only
way to operate now, and increasingly so in the future. His analysis
of the implications of this approach shows how there are no longer
binary choices to be made, but balances to be struck across ends,
ways and means from the board level down to the operating
level."--Robert Palfrey, Managing Director, Minerva Social Risk
"The author provides an in-depth analysis of the ethical challenges along the global supply and value chain and highlights best practices which help governments and corporates to find shortcuts towards a more ethical and sustainable world of business and society."--Wolfgang Lehmacher, Head of Supply Chain and Transport Industries at the World Economic Forum and Author of 'The Global Supply Chain: How Technology and Circular Thinking Transform our Future'
"With an overwhelming wealth of examples across industries and regions, 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."--Gwyneth Fries, Senior Sustainability Advisor, Forum for the Future
