As reported, the effects of climate change will cost companies up to $1.6 trillion per year by 2025(Forbes). Two-thirds of the average company’s environment, social, and governance footprint lies with suppliers(McKinsey). 

Embedding sustainability in your procurement operations will help you achieve your Sustainability targets and reduce your impact on the environment. By addressing social issues and human rights and managing and educating your supply chain, you will provide your organisation with better efficiency and higher competitiveness and reputation.
