Supply Chain Sustainability

Definition

Supply Chain Sustainability (SCS) is the collaborative effort of multiple stakeholders to design, build, and operate a seamless, valueadded supply chain to meet MASDARs goals and objectives

SMS - A Tool to Deliver the Masdar Vision

Plan Monitor Visualize and Analyze Foot print Supply Chain Products and Materials Reporting Operate the City

Masdar City Governance Department

What it is! What it is not!

Masdar City

It is NOT a City in the traditional Western definition No elected officials Not a separate public entity

It is a Private Development Tenancy Codes & Specific sustainability rules Specific guidelines on fit-out requirements Specific sustainability goals (OPL)

Sustainability includes the City Governance Department

The City Governance Department has worked to incorporate and integrate sustainability, expressed as the One Planet Living Principles, into: Governance Management and Operations planning

Continuing Challenges
Integration of the infrastructure systems
Sourcing new sustainable technologies

Increasing efficiencies of current technologies Supply chain mapping of materials and products

Next steps
Infrastructure associated development
Phase 1 podium construction Architectural competitions for iconic buildings Optimising real estate mix
