As well as a number of ongoing projects, our E2E Value Chain work has already delivered in a number of other areas. While these projects are no longer supported by active working groups, the excellent content they produced is still available.
Our Modularisation Project was about finding more effective ways to package units to aid more efficient shipping. More broadly, modularisation is about making things fit. It allows companies to organise items in a way that allows for greater flexibility while at the same time reducing the negative impacts currently being experienced. Our paper covers all this and more.
The Future Value Network project stems from on-going effort to to predict major trends that will impact our industry in the future. Originally the Future Value Chain series, our latest edition of the report highlighted the need to rethink the value chain.
The industry-wide Consumer Engagement Principles act as a framework for how companies engage with their consumers, and are designed to promote an environment of trust and pro-active consumer communication. The Principles benefit all stakeholders as the industry looks to safeguard consumers’ data and nurture greater consumer trust.
In this project, we sought to know how the industry could use digital to drive efficiencies across the value network, and how collaboration could help drive these efficiencies to new levels, benefiting both businesses and the consumer. A report, produced as part of this initiative, builds on workshops led by EY.
The Global Upstream Supply Iinitiative team broke new ground when they developed the Upstream Integration Model (UIM) framework. The framework is a checklist designed to improve communication and provide a strategy to approach different suppliers using global standards. At the heart it is a step-by-step guide.
This project was all about finding a common language for sustainability-related key performance indicators (KPIs) in logistics and its main focus was CO2 reduction. We developed a comprehensive and practical set of KPIs for CO2 emission and energy consumption reduction, ready for use by consumer goods companies.
The GPP was created to provide the consumer goods and packaging industries with a common language with which to discuss and assess the relative sustainability of packaging. That common language consists of a framework and a measurement system.
