Supply Chain Sustainability

A sustainable supply chain can benefit all of New York State—our businesses, communities, and environment.

The New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) helps manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to implement cost-effective supply-chain solutions that deliver long-term environmental, social, and economic value.

Why it matters

A sustainable supply chain

  • provides the transparency consumers increasingly look for when making purchasing decisions;
  • minimizes the impact of our economic activity on the environment; and
  • is more resource efficient, passing on cost savings to businesses.
