Sustainability in Supply Chain Management and Procurement

Our Expert Sustainability Consulting

Proactively shaping sustainability along the value chain

Sustainability is no longer just an ethical concern, but an explicit requirement from the majority of customers and investors. Acting with an environmental consciousness not only strengthens your brand image and reputation, it helps cement loyalty with existing customers and convince new ones about what you can do. Also, sustainable practices usually bring cost benefits and greater resilience against future risks. So it’s safe to say that putting effort into ecological and social responsibility is a relevant means of promoting your long-term business success.

But this work is not without its challenges, which is why you’ll need to answer the following questions:

  • How do we develop our sustainability strategy and successfully implement it?
  • What do our sustainability ambitions mean in terms of how we design sustainable processes, structures, and systems in supply chain management and procurement?
  • How do we reduce our carbon footprint?
  • How are roles in SCM and procurement changing in the face of increasing sustainability demands from investors, customers, and officials?
  • Which laws and guidelines have to be complied with?

Our expert sustainability consulting can help you answer these and other questions. Our systematic yet pragmatic consulting approach helps you to increase your sustainability performance and establish a sustainable supply chain.

Our sustainability specialists possess in-depth practical experience, much of which has been gained through leadership roles in sustainability, SCM, and procurement departments, and they have comprehensive project-specific and scientific sustainability backgrounds.
