Sustainable Supply Chains

The impact of your business does not stop at your company’s front door. In most organizations, the biggest impact is in the supply chain. Do you know exactly where your products or raw materials come from and under which conditions they are produced? Do you know how your logistics partner or subcontractor deals with sustainability? A good understanding of what’s happening in the supply chain is decisive for realizing ambitions. Moreover, you are expected to be able to answer all kinds of questions about your supply chain. Not just from your customers, but also from benchmark and rating agencies such as DJSI and EcoVadis, who want to fully understand your impact.

Sustainalize uses internationally recognized standards and guidelines to identify the themes within your supply chain where you have the greatest impact. We help you to demystify and embed human rights in your business through implementing the UNGP framework. We make climate risks transparent in line with TCFD. In short, we can help you to transform complex supply chain issues to concrete priorities for your company.

Sustainalize supports the creation and implementation of a sustainable purchasing strategy. In the context of socially responsible procurement we translate strategic goals into concrete procurement policies with targets and KPIs, maturity models and action plans. We support the assurance of sustainable sourcing within your work processes to determine roles and responsibilities. We help you ask the right questions to your suppliers, for instance by helping you decide whether to use an organization specific questionnaire or to use an existing platform as EcoVadis. We also train your buyers to apply your sustainable purchasing policy.
