What is a Sustainable Supply Chain and why is it important for companies

Which benefits are associated with joining a sustainable supply chain?

Why is the involvement of your suppliers crucial to the environmental sustainability of your organization?

Nowadays, nearly all companies strive for very high environmental, social, and governance standards.

To this end, the involvement of the entire supply chain is crucial, as the latter can become the most influential factor affecting environmental performance. Thus, its inclusion is strategically vital as it allows a company to be defined as truly ”green”.

A sustainable supply chain enables the evaluation of the organisation, from the product’s creation to its sale, and must be constantly monitored.

In this respect, it is essential to ensure that each step in the supply chain meets the standards that the organization has set for itself.

Consumers are becoming more and more aware of environmental issues compared to the past. Introducing yourself as a company that has achieved high standards of environmental sustainability and that is involved in a sustainable supply chain, allows you to be positioned in the market in a new and very favorable way, first and foremost by enhancing your reputation.

When we embark on sustainability journeys with our customers, one of the first topics we discuss is precisely the involvement of suppliers.

Our analyses show that, in terms of environmental sustainability, the most crucial impact remains the one brought about by the supply chain itself.

Involving suppliers and being able to act on them is a strategic aspect, which undeniably allows the company to be able to implement substantial improvements.

On the contrary, excluding the supply chain from the outset would result in the achievement of very limited savings, both energetic and economic.

Ultimately, the continuous monitoring of the entire supply chain allows, especially in the long term, to be able to aspire to higher results.
