As the triple bottom line becomes more and more of a business reality, it is no longer enough for companies to focus just on their people and profit lines, they must also seriously consider their impact on the planet.
It is encouraging to see companies making ambitious ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) and Net Zero targets, but without a solid plan for sustainable sourcing from their supply chain, they cannot reasonably expect to meet these targets. Sourcing is a key element of sustainable business, and sustainable procurement can help companies to minimise their environmental impact, control costs and protect their public reputations.
Control Union UK are experts in supporting businesses to operate more sustainably and ethically by improving their supply chain management. We do this in a number of ways:
Defining sustainable sourcing strategies
Developing toolkits for assessing compliance against sustainable sourcing programs
Training sustainability and procurement teams and suppliers in sustainability programs
Assessing suppliers and reporting on performance
Our work is bespoke to the specific ESG and Net Zero targets of each of our clients, but generally covers the following environmental and social impacts
Control Union UK has extensive experience in helping clients from a wide range of sectors to develop and implement their sustainable sourcing strategies. For more information on how we can help your business please contact us on CUUK@controlunion.com or +44 (0)20 7488 2210
