Sustainable Procurement Research Report
Driving Exponential Impact Across the Supply Chain While there are countless examples of procurement teams driving truly remarkable sustainability outcomes across the world, our latest research shows that most procurement teams are still getting started and only scratching the surface of what’s possible. And virtually all organisations have significant room to improve. Ensuring that procurement is sustainable is a must in the modern world. All key stakeholders are counting on it these days with customers, regulators and investors all keen on the idea. As well as making good business sense, it also makes sense from an ethical point of view considering the global impact of procurement. As with many other fields, there are plenty of good examples where procurement teams have achieved great sustainability results already. Ethical supply chains, for example, are no longer considered just 'nice to have'. However, some of our latest research highlights the issues many teams are still facing. While good progress has been made, there is still a long way to go for most organisations. There has never been a better time than now to move towards a sustainable model across the wider industry. Sustainability is a hot topic at the moment and procurement is well placed to lead the global effort. Our in-depth report with Ivalua takes a look at the specifics of the current state of affairs within procurement, and looks into what measures are being taken to ensure sustainability. We also look at how teams can best make the shift towards more sustainable practices.
