For the past couple of years CME Canada Makes has partnered with the GARDN project Greening the Aerospace Supply Chain. Some of you may remember the aerospace survey we shared last year. We are now ready to introduce some of the results of this project.

During the Canada Makes Forum François Charron-Doucet, Director of Quality Control and Scientific Director at Groupe AGÉCO, will present the survey results Green Aerospace Practices in Canada.

The next day is the 3-hour workshop that is intended for professionals from the procurement, operations and design departments involved in the aerospace sector value chain.

The objective of the workshop is to introduce the participants to the concepts and best practices related to GSCM. The completion of the workshop will allow the participants to apply GSCM thinking and facilitate the implementation of GSCM initiatives into various organizational processes.

More specifically, the workshop will cover the following topics:

  • What is GSCM?
  • Why implement GSCM?
  • The approaches to GSCM
    • Green sourcing
    • Green design
    • Green operations
  • How to implement GSCM?
  • Application of GSCM to:
    • Standard parts
    • Avionics
    • Composites
    • Additive manufacturing

The Objectives of the Greening the Aerospace Supply Chain are to define a supply-chain management framework to provide industrials with the capacity to prioritize eco-responsible purchasing actions, define technologies’ green specifications and efficiently treat environmental information. The acquired knowledge will offer a collaboration model fully adapted to the Canadian aerospace sector, facilitating ecodesign across the supply chain.

It aims to contribute to the development of a sustainable air transportation system and will provide industrials and their suppliers with tools and methods to significantly reduce the environmental footprint.
