Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Management

Share


Leading companies understand that sustainable supply chain management reduces operating risks, promotes the integrity of their brands, and unleashes opportunities for cost savings and innovation.

Sustainable supply chains depend on an integrated system of internal, supplier-facing, and collaborative efforts across industries and geographies.

Our Approach

Drawing upon our deep experience across multiple industries and regions in both buying and sourcing environments, we help companies develop internal approaches, engage with suppliers, and build meaningful collaborations to improve labor, environmental, and economic performance in supply chains.

Specifically, we work with companies to:

  • Develop and review sustainable procurement strategies and policies
  • Identify opportunities to integrate sustainability into procurement and implement changes by working with senior management and buying teams
  • Design and execute supplier engagement and training programs
  • Lead collaborative initiatives that address key issues in sourcing countries
