titled Green Supply Chains - A CEOs handbook.

Press Release Body:

North Sydney,Australia,December 05, 2007--As the world leaders from more than 160
countries come together in Bali this week to do something tangible and positive
about the climate change, the business is increasingly feeling the pressure to make
a significant contribution.

In 1978 when Dr. Wolfgang Partsch embarked on a journey through snow in Swiss Alps
to his clients Landis and Gyr's office in Switzerland, little did he know that the
brainwave that struck him while using snow chains would unleash a tsunami of supply
chain literature. Since that eventful day more than 25 years ago, with its huge
impact on the business Supply Chain has earned its rightful place in the boardrooms
across the world. Wolfgang himself has accomplished more than 100 projects with
large multinational corporations around the world, adding more than $2 billion
dollars of value in the process. Not that he talks a lot about it. When the world
credits you as the father of modern supply chains, you don't have to blow your own
trumpet. Moreover, his eyes are always fixed firmly on the future.

Dr. Wolfgang Partsch, now a senior partner with Global Supply Chain Group, based in
Munich, Germany says literally, the hottest issue today is Global Warming, and the
business needs to play its role in finding a solution along with the public and the
governments. Our extensive modeling reveals that the businesses stand to gain
overall if they decide to move systematically and collaboratively to Green Supply
Chains. Our report shows the ways how. It should be on the bookshelf of every CEO
and progressive manager.

With increasing pressure to be environmentally friendly in their businesses, the
managers are finding the noise related to what is green, and what is not slightly
contradictory. A case in point is the practice of Lean Manufacturing. By cutting
waste it helps corporations become more 'green'. However, the Just-in-Time delivery
practice all increases the number of deliveries, increasing the environmental

"Any corporation can become carbon neutral by outsourcing every carbon producing
activity. To create real and tangible positive impact on the environment smart
corporations are thinking beyond the traditional boundaries and reaping huge
dividends in the public relations war" said Vivek Sood, the Managing Director of
Global Supply Chain Group based in Sydney, Australia.

Potential for Green Supply Chains has long been recognized and acknowledged.
However, many reasons have impeded the adoption of green supply chain principals by
corporations. One of the reasons has been lack of comprehensive methodology and tool
kit to make it happen.Green Supply Chains - A CEO\'s Handbook - available at a fee
from Global Supply Chain Group discusses how corporations can drive their supply
chains green with a positive bottom-line impact.

This report is based on the proprietary research, interviews with more than key 100
executives, original case studies, green system and process mapping, and nearly 12
man-months of original analysis by top-tier strategy consulting caliber analysts. It
gives a holistic view of the green supply chains through the decades, traces how
business and supply chains have always moved in lock-step with each other and
creates a map of future of the green supply chains. It also takes into account the
trends, the capabilities, the changing business needs, and geo-political realities
to create a holistic view of Green Supply Chains and their key elements.

This report helps answer the 5 key questions one needs to answer in order to move
your supply chains towards green supply chains:
What are the tangible and intangible benefits of moving towards green supply chains?
What are the costs - both direct, and indirect?
What influence do we have over our suppliers, their suppliers and our customers that
would allow us to jointly work together and move the supply chain towards a green
supply chain?
In our end to end supply chain, which party has the most influence? How can we
encourage them to think 'green'? Why?
How will we communicate our progress towards the green supply chain to the key
stakeholders? How will we engage them?
