As concern for the environment rises, companies must take more account of the external costs of logistics associated mainly with climate change, air pollution, noise, vibration and accidents. Leading the way in current thinking on environmental logistics, Green Logistics provides a unique insight on the environmental impacts of logistics and the actions that companies and governments can take to deal with them. It is written by a group of leading researchers in the field and provides a comprehensive view of the subject for students, managers and policy-makers. Fully updated and revised, the 3rd Edition of Green Logistics takes a more global perspective than previous editions. It introduces new contributors and international case studies that illustrate the impact of green logistics in practice. There is a new chapter on the links between green logistics and corporate social responsibility (CSR) and a series of postscripts examining the likely effects of new developments, such as 3D printing and distribution by drone, on the environmental footprint of logistics. Other key topics examined in the book include: carbon auditing of supply chains; transferring freight to greener transport modes; reducing the environmental impact of warehousing; improving the energy efficiency of freight transport; making city logistics more environmentally sustainable; reverse logistics for the management of waste; role of government in promoting sustainable logisticsIdeal for use on related courses, the 3rd Edition of Green Logistics includes indispensable online supporting materials, including graphics, tables and chapter summaries, as well as technical information and guidelines for teachers and lecturers. The book is endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).
