The aim of TOSCA – "Towards sustainable supply chains through a common approach for company strategic work and daily operations" – is to show how companies can work towards sustainable development, within the company and in its supply chain.
The TOSCA website http://www.tosca-life.info/
presents the TOSCA framework for working with sustainability in different parts of the supply chain, in terms of:
Activities in the work towards sustainable supply chains, with practical approaches and examples for how a company can introduce and integrate sustainability considerations into business processes.
Information about what Sustainable development means, including current trends & issues and the business case.
Getting started guides for how to get started with central tools in the work with sustainability in supply chains.
TOSCA is a co-operation project between AkzoNobel, SCA and Chalmers University of Technology, with funding from the EU LIFE + Environment programme. The project will run during 2009 to 2011.
