Organisations are under increasing pressure to implement sustainability measures throughout their business. Procurement is one area where you can make a big difference and boost your ethical credentials without compromising on margins.

1. Competitive Advantage: Show leadership in your industry by demonstrating an authentic commitment to sustainable sourcing
2. Opportunity: Be able to supply to the businesses and organisations who have already implemented strict sustainable purchasing policies
3. Alignment: Be aligned with your customers ethical policies and create brand loyalty
4. Future proof: Strict waste control and sustainability regulation is inevitable. Implement your strategy now and be ahead of the curve.

Our team will assess all areas of your supply chain and identify opportunities to improve your sustainability credentials within a competitive pricing structure.

Areas for sustainability improvements

Every organisation has the potential to reduce their impact on the environment. In our assessment phase we typically look at the following areas for immediate gains:

  • Emission reduction – carbon footprint, greenhouse gases, toxic gases, carcinogenic particulate matter
  • Waste minimisation – identifying and limiting sources of waste, promoting recycling or aftermarket and avoiding landfill, enabling circular economy
  • Plastic avoidance – materials evaluation considering total environmental burden, sourcing portfolio redesign for minimum total impact
  • Child labour and modern slavery elimination – improving supply chain transparency and auditing suppliers’ labour practices
  • Supplier accountability and continuous improvement reporting on raw material sources and their own sustainability practices
  • Community engagement – ensuring fair wages, enabling local organisation in your supply chain, boosting employment
  • Diversity improvements – promoting the inclusion of ethnic minorities, gender balance and orientation through your supply chain
  • Cost minimisation with a sustainability overlay
    – Demand management of direct materials and travel
    – TCO / cradle-to-grave, such as increasing a specification to last longer so unit price is higher but
    through-life cost is lower (purchase, maintain, operate, dispose)
