Swedish teen environmental activist, Greta Thunberg, became the face of climate change with her words, tweets, and unrelenting finger-pointing at older generations: “You have stolen my childhood and my dreams with your empty words.” 

Over a decade ago, “green” supply chains were more talk than action. Predictions from 2010 are being realized and exceeded today.

WEEK 1 DISCUSSION POST

Using this week’s readings to understand the green supply chain, venture out and find at least one other recent resource for the post. It is not necessary to explain the green supply chain since we have all done the research. For your post:

  • Provide guidance as to how green techniques/activities are integrated into the supply chain.
  • Discuss barriers to establish a green chain.
  • Using the resource beyond this week’s readings, provide a real-world example of a company employing “greening” in its supply chain and how it worked out for them. (The article should be less than two years old.)

This post should be 2 paragraphs in length (150-200 words). Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite in the body of the post and add a reference list in APA format. NOTE: failure to use research with accompanying citations to support content will result in reduced scoring “Level 2-Developing” for Quality of Initial Posting, Critical Thinking, and Reference to Supporting Readings/Information Literacy on the grading rubric. 

WEEK 1 INTERACTIVE RESPONSES TO CLASSMATES

1st Interactive Response:

  • Analyze one student’s industry examination of green activities and compare/contrast it to your post.

2nd Interactive Response:

  • Analyze another student’s company example and compare/contrast it to your post.

Each reply should be one paragraph in length (or about 75 words) and must be substantive in nature. Do not simply say “I agree” or “That is great”; specify why and be detailed in your explanation. You may use research in your responses, but it is not required.
