Frequently Asked Questions

Is This Course Right For Me?

Absolutely! This strategic course will benefit anyone who wants to improve their understanding and real-world application of how to integrate strategies, concepts, and skill sets for supply chain, Sustainability/ESG, Resilience, and regulatory compliance.

It’s especially useful for supply chain management professionals across all functional areas, planners, managers, directors, corporate strategy personnel, and Sustainability/ESG/CSR managers who need to understand how to tie in supply chain performance as a part of Sustainability.

This program works well for gaining expertise and insight on how to organize for and obtain the ASCM Enterprise Certification.

How will I learn?

First, the course is offered virtually - no travel or expensive accommodations required! A Zoom link will be sent once you register.

Second, you will learn through class discussions, hands-on team work, and a few simple digital tools we'll teach you how to use.

How Much Does The Program Cost?

The Building Sustainable Supply Chains hands-on, advanced supply chain course, 24-hours in length, is an investment of $1997. You also get free access to all future Bonus sessions offered on varying subjects.

For groups, please contact to discuss group discounts.

Your tuition includes all materials, digital tools, participants guide, and ASCM membership with access to advanced supply chain portals if you are not already a member.

While not mandatory, you can also register for the SCOR Framework workshop with your Building Sustainable Supply Chains course. You get a discount for purchasing both.

What benefit will my company get?

1) Business Leaders are very hesitant to start Sustainability changes because they do not believe there is anyone in their company who can handle the change for them.

With Building Sustainable Supply Chains: You are the one!

2) Regulations for formal Sustainability disclosures are already a reality in some countries, countries your supply chain is already in. You must satisfy these regulations, even if your supply chain originates elsewhere.

More countries are actively pursuing regulations. You will be able to protect the world, its people, and your profits all together. The State of California just put forward legislation for sustainable reporting requirements for supply chains.

Formal U.S. regulations are expected to be out this fall. No need to tell you regulations are legal requirements.

Adding to regulations are the investors, customers, and activist groups that require change and integrated purpose, or no investment, fewer customers, more difficult time hiring employees, and media call outs because sustainability is not embedded in your supply chains.

You already have the capabilities of running successful supply chains. Integrating the Sustainability & Resilience components should not be a challenge - Building Sustainable Supply Chains makes sure of that.

What do I get for completing the course?

You will receive 2.2 CEUs (Continuing Education Units) for 100% attendance. If life happens and you miss a few hours, you can make up those few hours in the next course offering and obtain the CEUs.

You also earn a Process & Strategy Course Completion certificate. Again, if you miss a few hours, you can make the hours up in the next Building Sustainable Supply Chains course to achieve your certificate. For those who are not able to make up hours, you will receive a Certificate of Participation to apply to your yearly performance, learning, and development goals.

Your class hours count toward your ASCM maintenance points.
