Click here to join the meeting
The global demand for rubber is ever-increasing. As consumption levels grow, so do the environmental problems which accompany manufacturing. Environmental responsibility is now a pressing issue worldwide, and the Thai Rubber industry is no exception. As a consequence of green measures, pressure has been put upon this industry to design a supply chain which will be environmentally friendly whilst still allowing economic gain. While current research on the Thai Rubber supply chain is available, however, none of the early works deal with issues that address economic benefits and environmental maintenance as twin, or connected concerns. The objective of this seminar, therefore, is to present the research work seeking a solution assists in managing the Thai Rubber supply chain such that it may achieve economic gain whilst remaining environmentally friendly.
