The practice of sustainable supply chain management helps to ensure a better future not just for the planet but for people and businesses.

It's time to get proactive about sustainable procurement

Back to all products

Operating sustainably isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s an increasingly important benchmark of success. The risks of not complying with national and international legislation can be damaging, but environmental sustainability is also a big opportunity. We are experts at helping you unlock the financial, operational and reputational benefits of working with sustainable supply chains.

While sustainability is about protecting the planet for future generations, it can also be about profits. You can now gain a competitive advantage from sustainable practices. We go beyond helping you meet your environmental reporting obligations – we help drive efficiencies, reduce risk and bring costs down too. We make sure you tick every box by meeting customer and employee expectations regarding your environmental impact.

From greenhouse gas emissions to waste management, our expert team captures and validates the right environmental data from both your own organisation and your suppliers. We take the complexity out of sustainability – and provide comprehensive reporting and insights to drive actionable business decisions.

How it works

From sourcing and selecting through to your ongoing relationships, our services are designed to reduce third party risk and improve compliance - every step of the way.

Pre-qualification questionnaire

Part of our supplier pre-qualification process is collecting and verifying data relating to the environment. This gives buyers a more complete and accurate view of the risk profiles of potential and current suppliers. We remove the uncertainty of working with new companies and help strengthen existing relationships.

This end-to-end solution enables businesses across the globe to mitigate supplier risks, measure and track supplier compliance – either as a complement to existing in-house audit resource or a cost-effective alternative.

It is absolutely vital to get the supply chain involved. As a standalone organisation you can achieve so much but until you engage the supply chain, you achieve much more significant reductions. Not only that, but we want to work with leading suppliers who are looking at their own.
