Because of the various interfaces to internal and external stakeholders and as the manager of external value creation, procurement plays a central role when it comes to ingraining sustainability in one’s company and along supply chains.
Procurement managers decide how, where, and what things are bought. This bestows them with the responsibility whether or not sustainable products flow into the company and out toward customers in sustainable ways. Procurement departments also determine to what extent products with high material intensity, above-average carbon footprints or with connections to human rights violations get purchased. With this lever, procurement departments can affect not only internal economic operations and activities but also positively impact entire supply chains while generating benefits to climate, environment, and society.
2/3 of the social and ecological footprint of a company lies in their supply chain. A transparent, active, and cooperative supplier management is, therefore, of extreme importance.
A major challenge for procurement departments lies in the transparency of sustainability-relevant factors across entire supply chains in order to assess current and potential suppliers. This necessary transparency is often missing, as it is difficult and time-intensive to generate.
