Getting to grips with sustainability in the supply chain

It should come as no surprise that measuring and monitoring key impacts is necessary for effective and well functioning supply chains — with transparency throughout all practices.

While many large corporations are committed to entrenching fair economic, environmental and social practices throughout their supply networks, too often these commitments fail to be effectively translated and cascaded.

With the proliferation of the jargon on ‘green recovery’, ‘net zero’ and ‘decarbonization’, supply chain sustainability-related regulations around the world are also on the rise.

Embracing globally-applicable reporting standards, such as those from GRI, helps organizations to collaborate with the suppliers, setting clear KPIs for sustainability, which in turn is a driver for accountability.
