    Thanks for sharing this video. I believe that Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Corporation Social Responsibility (CSR) are mutually inclusive. Consider, for example, the more a business grows in profit, the more efforts it will put into its CSR; which brings in a stricter policy to its SC. Nowadays, many corporations adopted the Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM) which explicitly integrates three dimensions – economic, environmental and social that constitute the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) principle.
    For example, IKEA developed e-Wheel to evaluate the environmental impact of its products and analyze the five stages of the life of a product. This also helps its suppliers to improve their understanding of the environmental impact of the products they are supplying. In 2016, IKEA initiated the Coal-Removal Project in China. Why? China in particular accounts for nearly 30 percent of its global purchases with roughly 300 local suppliers. The goal of this project was to reduce coal use as a direct source from the energy portfolios of local supplier factories and also served as a perfect opportunity to help smaller companies scale-up their sustainability efforts. It was a huge success. But what’s really encouraging to me is that these efforts can be scaled not just within other IKEA supplier factories, but among other companies looking to do the same.

    Nowadays, people are better aware of environmental issues, regulatory impacts, and corporate’s business ethics. Therefore, a growing number of companies increase their concern on the area of corporate social responsibility practices.

    As Eddie mentioned, more and more companies start to use green energy and produce products with safe resources and materials. I think it’s great to apply corporate social responsibility into the supply chain process. It could not only benefit the company but also the society and the environment.

    In the seminar, the lecturer let us know about the CSR and Strategy in Supply Chain. That give me more understand about the CSR and Strategy skill and technical. For example, some situation had to compete like we need to insist on profitability. It can make the company more profit and we must link to the company’s core purpose and get a clear mission and vision. It also we want to more understand customers need and satisfy. We also need focus on the right issues to make the company all the thing greater and safety. On the hand, everyone finds energy costs, fuel prices, and energy independence personally relevant. That can make everyone get a great interest and what they wanted. On the other hand, we need to use the organization properly that can make the company or organization get high and higher. The last I think we need to use this kind of skill or technical to manage one of the depart in the company or organization.

    I’m uploading this comment on behalf of 葉穎諾 which had some issues uploading it.

    First of all, I want to thank Eddie for the online lecture. Though the technology used and the internet connection could’ve be better, I still appreciate the extra time Eddie spend to teach us. The content and the way of handling all information are something worth mentioning.

    I like how Eddie connected all the broad knowledge together, especially connect environment issue with business, for example global warming and assets protection. Global warming has been highly focused through on these days. This issue is something we, business majors, should be aware of and understand well.

    I want to thank Eddie and Professor Dan for taking the time to arrange his video conference. Although the understanding of Corporation Social Responsibility (CSR) is popular in many business practices, and the importance of it has been highlighted in various multinational companies, there are still various companies such as GAP, H&M, whose overseas manufacturing companies are not aware of the concept of Corporation Social Responsibility. Workers of those overseas manufacturing companies are given tough working environments, low wages, no health insurance, and hire underage workers for the sake of low-profit products. Especially in most OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) companies have this type of problem. Thus this highlights the importance of not just teaching the large multinational companies the concept of CSR, but the whole supply chain, where every part of the chain is regulated and not left out.

    Aside from the usual learning materials such as the textbook and powerpoints, I believe it is important for students to be exposed to other methods of learning such as having a knowledgeable guest speaker. It keeps the class more interesting, which leads to the students to being more engaging during the class period — something that a lot of classes here lack.

    Admittedly, when I think of supply chain, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) would not be one of the first things I associate it with, therefore I am grateful that Mr. Daniel decided to invite Eddie to give us a talk about the said topics so that we were able to develop a deeper understanding. Eddie gave a lengthy lecture regarding supply chain and CSR, answered Mr. Daniel’s questions in a very detailed and thoughtful manner, and also gave his own personal opinion on certain topics so that we gain another perspective on the subject.
