Green logistics for sustainable development: The challenge of general price increases
Abdelmalek Essaadi University, Morocco
Green logistics is the process of reducing the environmental footprint of a product throughout its life cycle. The level of interest in this approach is growing and companies are increasingly concerned about environmental issues. When we talk about a green supply chain, we often tend to associate it specifically with road transport. However, green thinking can be applied to all links in the supply chain, from supply to distribution green logistics consists of integrating an ecological approach into the management of logistics processes in order to reduce their impact on the environment. This extends over the entire life cycle of the product: manufacturing, storage, transport, placing on the market, use, and destruction. On the other side, the health crisis has disrupted the various supply chains since the confinement end and the resumption of activities on construction sites has forced companies to supply themselves with material where production had resumed, thus leading to a rise in prices. The objective of this article is to study the general effect of rising raw material prices on green logistics.
Key words: Green logistics / sustainable development / rising prices
