2011 Dubai SITL to include green supply chain segmentVisitors to an annual international freight and supply chain exhibition in Dubai will be seeing a little something extra this year - a segment about "eco logistics."

Dubai SITL 2011, one of the Middle East's premier supply chain conferences, will be adding an "eco logistics" meeting to its schedule. The new segment will focus on green supply chains, environmentally friendly shipping and logistics practices and other ecological concerns. The exhibition's organizers, Reed International Middle East, have arranged for the new environmental element to promote and highlight supply chain concerns such as energy reduction, improved fuel consumption and corporate responsibility.

In addition the new ecological segment, the 2011 event will also include seminars on transport and logistics, logistics real estate, information systems and technologies and logistics infrastructure.

Green supply chain are becoming a focus for many major corporations as consumers insist on purchasing products that don't contribute to global climate and poverty issues. Even some corporate landmarks - such as Wal-Mart and H&M - have recently committed to greening their supply chain, shipping and logistics practices.
