The team analyzed issues concerning sustainability within supply chains and created a toolkit for use by SMEs in Northeast Ohio. The work with Steve Ostank and his team at Neundorfer Inc. guided them to ask the right question. This is the essential question of the work:

How Do SMEs Proactively Develop Strategies to Add Value by Focusing on Sustainability?

The analysis highlighted risks and opportunities in upcoming regulatory changes. This is an opportunity to give our region’s businesses a competitive advantage by providing resources and examples of how they could prepare for upcoming changes.
