The Supply Chain Sustainability School has partnered with the Collaboration Of Merry Elves Overseas Network to deliver their Sustainability Action Noel Training Activities (COME-ON-SANTA).

“It is important that we bring joy to the earth and all people, not just joy to the families of children on the nice list,” a COME-ON- SANTA spokesperson said. “So, this year we have partnered with the Supply Chain Sustainability School to upskill our elves and human supply chain on ways to make our operation more sustainable.”

Supply Chain Sustainability School CEO, Hayley Jarick, elated at the new partnership, exclaimed, “we are honoured to have COME-ON join as a Fellow of the School for the festive season and privileges to deliver the SANTA to the public! Who knows maybe Mr Clause will don his green suit again sometime soon.” She went on to say that “tapping into the School’s existing resource library and Fellow project perks was a smart decision.  Our Fellows have collaborated to develop insightful and relevant sustainability resources for all industries in Australia and are expanding to Aotearoa New Zealand. As the School steps up a new growth phase, now is the time to join the School and contribute to this amazing industry collaboration.”




This year more than ever the Collaboration Of Merry Elves (COME) are relying on their Overseas Network (ON) to ensure the successful delivery of presents to nice children during the evening of Christmas Eve and dawn Christmas day. COME-ON will be responsible for logistics, quarantine, packaging and decentralised warehousing of gifts prior to the Christmas delivery window.

COME-ON member identities must remain confidential which has historically made face to face training and education programs impossible to deliver. Thankfully, the School’s on-demand modules and privacy protocols enable COME-ON members to securely create a free membership account and complete 2021 SANTA requirements from the comfort of their personal device and a flexible time that suits them.




Sustainability Action Noel Training Activities (SANTA) is designed to educate COME-ON members on tactics to achieve this years’ COME-ON objectives.

Expand the delivery window by getting recipients to bed early and sleep in as long as possible.
Local procurement and warehousing
Avoid shipping transport emissions from the North Pole where possible.
Store locally acquired gifts close to the delivery destination in a secure location.
Festive singing has been a noise pollution and covert delivery risk for many years. Now with the increased risk of transmission of COVID-19, we recommend you don't sing indoors unless you are not on duty, vaccinated and can actually hold a tune.
Christmas time can be stressful for many families for many reasons. Be kind to each other and check in with vulnerable members to see if they are okay.
In the event that covert operations are compromised, explain to recipients the unique constraints COVID has placed on supply chains around the world and be kind to yourself; no one is perfect.
