New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/28/2021 -- According to a new report from Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Center for Transportation and Logistics and the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals, most companies managed to maintain their supply-chain sustainability goals despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The study found that 2020 objectives that were focused on sustainability as well as issues of supplier diversity and worker welfare remained a priority even as the pandemic began to spread. Not only that but around 80% of the directors who took part in the survey said that the pandemic didn't affect commitments to supply chain sustainability, in fact in some cases this created even more focus on it. This is an achievement in particular given the disruption that resulted from lockdowns and economic closures that put pressure on businesses up and down the supply chain. Other social goals also became much more of a priority, including equality, inclusion and employee safety. This shift is already affecting logistics and supply chain recruitment in 2021.
