Whether it is investors, governments, or consumers, nobody closes their eyes to the ethical and environmental positioning of a company anymore. Securing clients or securing investments today depends on the reputation that a company builds.

Managing one's own risk and the risk that others bring is about taking leadership, about being committed to responsibility, to sustainable challenges. Organizations are getting smarter and ambitiously managing governance, risk, ethical posture. The fact is that slip-ups become worldwide scandals in a matter of minutes in these digital times. The failures of others can quickly become your failures, destroying relationships, your value, your brand, your legacy. Have you thought about this?

So, well-run companies look after their supply chains, the communities that surround them, and sustain values. It's the old story of "tell me who you hang out with and I'll tell you who you are"...

Dealing with the risk of environmental resilience in your supply chain helps to preserve, create value, avoid losses. The relationship with suppliers and partners requires the company to manage its own and the entire chain's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, as well as manufacturing conditions, equal pay, respect for human and labor rights, water use, diversity, and other metrics relevant to its industry.

And as together we go further, consider also the conduct of your suppliers, as essential to their performance as the conduct of your company. Your suppliers' operations and data must be as clear and accurate as your internal data. Your management, investors, and the public will be reassured and confident knowing that a company takes a leadership role and manages third-party sustainability information with the same diligence that its internal metrics are treated.


1) Keep in mind that you will need to sort suppliers by metrics that are important to your organization.

2) The next step is to evaluate suppliers on responsibility and sustainability metrics, according to the standards your company sees as ideal.

3) Then, centralize the management of the evaluation and define with your team what the strengths of each supplier are and what actions will be taken to improve what is needed. 

IMPORTANT: do everything with transparency. Inform partners in actionable reports and dashboards. Use the information to drive resilience, ethical values, and sustainability throughout your supply chain.
