Firstly, you will need to build up your in-house sustainability knowledge, you will first need to identify the specific areas where your team lacks expertise. Most Logistics firms are already expert at optimisation, but demands for new skills are continuously emerging, such as tracking environmental data such as carbon emissions across transportation, warehousing and administrative activities; optimising transport, cargo-handling and warehousing workflows to reduce carbon emissions; managing different waste streams in warehousing operations with circular strategies; securing sustainable finance to support your implementation of sustainable technologies such as electric vehicles or solar energy; or developing a Sustainable Innovation strategy to transform your business model towards Green Logistics. The Appendix in this playbook lists various courses that focus on Supply Chain Sustainability.

After identifying the skill gaps in your organisation, you may consider hiring for new green jobs, undergoing skills development from the many training providers available, or commissioning external support from advisors and consultancies to rapidly augment your knowledge base.
