In light of the UN’s recent Climate Change Report 2021, it’s never been more black-and-white: climate change is widespread, rapid, and intensifying. We’ve all got a part to play in limiting climate change; it’s a time-sensitive case of now or never.
Effectively speaking directly to the logistics and supply chain sectors, the 1987 Brundtland Report defines sustainable development as ‘producing and distributing goods in a sustainable way, taking account of environmental, financial, and social factors’.

It seems like everyone knows at least one person that made some cash on cryptocurrency this year.
