Capacity constraints, increased demand for home deliveries and safety concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic led experts to believe that sustainability efforts would fall by the wayside.

More than 2,400 supply chain professionals were surveyed in late 2020, and 80% of respondents said that their companies’ commitment to supply chain sustainability (SCS) had increased or stayed the same since 2019.
“Some executives said that the pandemic had a limited impact on SCS and may have propelled or ‘accelerated’ their sustainability efforts,” the report said.
