March 24, 2020 /3BL Media/ - Pressure is mounting for companies to add value to society.
 
Sustainability leaders and C-suite execs are on the hot seat - and not only those making public commitments like UN Global Compact, the SDGs, SBTi, “net zero” pledges, and the like. Demands for inclusive capitalism and a more purposeful economy are echoing across the globe, and into every corporate boardroom.
 
Many see the current coronavirus crisis as a test of both resilience and corporate purpose. Corporations are being tasked to prioritize long-term, sustainable value, and many leaders have found a powerful lever: the supply chain.
 
The Substance of Purpose, a new eBook presented by EcoVadis, takes a deep look at supply chain sustainability’s essential role in driving corporate commitments to serve society while enhancing growth, brand, and valuation.
 
Key takeaways include:

  • Most companies spend 50-70% of revenue in their supply chain - savvy exec teams collaborate on sustainable procurement to create impact.
  • Sustainable procurement programs lead to risk mitigation, improved procurement metrics, cost savings, and innovation.
  • There’s a $12tn opportunity linked to achieving the SDGs - visionary CEOs and their teams, like those who spoke about “the responsibility of CEOs” at the recent Sustain 2020 event, recognize sustainable supply chains as a key value driver. 

Begin mapping out your sustainable supply chain strategy today, to build resilience and drive impact tomorrow.
