Measuring Up?

Supply Chain Shaman

In Figure 2, we share the average results by industry peer group for each metric and contrast the average value of 2006 to 2015. 2006 was the last full year before the recession, and 2015 is the most recent year reported. Economic Vision of Supply Chain 2030.

How Can We Heal the Global Supply Chain?

Supply Chain Shaman

Corporate report data is not readily available before 2006. However, as we look at the Colgate orbit chart, it should spark a question of “If IT standardization is the answer for managing costs and inventory, why is Colgate at the same level in 2015 that they were in 2006?”

This is why one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), SDG 15 is committed to protecting, restoring and promoting “sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably managed forests, combating desertification reversing land degradation and halting biodiversity loss” by 2030.

Big Tech and Auto Battle for the World’s Cobalt Resources

Elementum

In 2006, lithium-ion batteries consumed only 20% of the global cobalt supply. Cobalt demand will exceed supply by 42% in 2025 and 170% in 2030. Ten years later, that number has more than doubled. It’s expected that market demand for the metal will increase to more than 120,000 tonnes per year by 2020 — 60% of which will account for battery production alone.

A vision for a transparent global Rare Earth Element system using blockchain technology

Provenance

Honda, for instance, has already begun extracting over 80% of its rare earth materials from nickel-metal hydride batteries , and it is predicted that by 2030, 10% of Nd demand in the EU will be met through recycling magnets from electric vehicles, wind turbines and hard disk drives.
