Specialist procurement and supply chain consultancy Proxima has today launched a dedicated Sustainability Service Line, designed to deliver rapid sustainability programmes and transformational procurement and supply chain strategies for businesses.
The new service line will bring together Proxima’s existing sustainability offerings, which have already helped its clients to implement new supplier strategies in sectors such as retail, engineering and financial services, and provide a singular holistic offering for businesses.
Typically, over 80% of an organisations sustainability impact is within the supply chain. Proxima’s service focuses on this area; advising businesses to identify where they can work with suppliers to deliver more sustainable goods and services, and helping them to deliver those gains. There are three central pillars to the service:
- Assessment – profiling exposure and opportunities to drive change in the supply base
- Acceleration – from getting started with quick wins to driving big ticket programmes
- Transformation – embedding principles in to commercial behaviours and working practices
These three solutions will support businesses in aligning their organisation to their employee, shareholder and customer values, as well as helping them to track and measure their results.
Edward Winterschladen, EVP Europe said:
“Sustainability has rapidly risen up the agenda for businesses and consumers, and robust sustainability policies are now essential for any business. With these policies in place, businesses have an opportunity to address reputational and financial risk, grow, optimise costs and improve brand perception.
We are delighted to be able to deliver on this opportunity by bringing together our existing sustainability offerings in a single dedicated Sustainability Service Line. This new consolidated offering will deliver transformational sustainability programmes and allow businesses to drive real social, environmental and ethical impact.”
