Your Goal: Improve sustainability

Supply Chain Management

For many companies, sustainability is by now much more than just a buzzword or mere lip service. Sustainability has long since been recognized as a key to stand out from the competition and to boost own revenues. Here, supply chain management can deliver a significant value contribution to the company’s objectives due to its impact on the whole supply chain.

That’s why HÖVELER HOLZMANN supports you in optimally setting up your supply chain in all fundamental aspects of sustainability (ecology, economics and social issues). Since the term "sustainability" is multifaceted, we’re glad to consult you on what this specifically means for your company, and which minimum requirements you should pass on to the supply chain. We’ll design a sustainability strategy for you that will be embedded in your SCM goals and directly related to your corporate strategy. To control target achievement, we define tailor-made sustainability key performance indicators. This can, e.g., be realized in the form of collaborations of logistics service providers, prevention of transports, including calculation of sustainability effects.

Improve sustainability

For many companies, sustainability is by now much more than just a buzzword or mere lip service. Sustainability has long since been recognized as a key to stand out from the competition and to boost own revenues. As the direct interface to internal customers and external partners, the procurement department takes on an especially high-profile role here as multiplicator and driver of sustainable economic development. But even though "green procurement" and "sustainable procurement" are definitely not new concepts, the implementation and relevant reporting are still unchartered territory for numerous companies.

That’s why HÖVELER HOLZMANN supports you in optimally setting up your procurement in all fundamental aspects of sustainability (ecology, economics and social issues). Since the term "sustainability" is multifaceted, we’re glad to advise you regarding what this specifically means for your company and which minimum claims you should pass on to your suppliers. We design a sustainability strategy for you that will be embedded in your procurement objectives and relates directly to your corporate strategy. To control target achievement, we define customized key sustainability performance indicators and give you the tools you need to create a "green" supplier base. For example, this can be realized in the form of regular audits, supplier checklists on the sustainability issue or by establishing collaborations with other companies to evaluate suppliers.

Here, we specifically break up the area of tension between implementing sustainability in procurement and realizing savings in parallel. This is achieved by systematically analyzing and prioritizing product groups and defining product group strategies in order to realize the relevant sustainability and savings goals.
