The challenges of a sustainable supply chain
The entire purchasing department, the supply chain, all raw materials and semi-finished products are checked and analyzed for their sustainability status. Critical goods and suppliers are then reported. The result enables you to evaluate your product groups and to find sustainable, future-oriented solutions together with your suppliers.
A SWOT analysis and priority workshop identify critical goods and supplier gaps to be analyzed. A pilot project is developed and use cases are generated. We visualize your supply chain and make future sustainability potentials visible. The range of services offered by TALENT-net and Integrity Next promotes the new role of purchasing and ensures greater sustainability throughout your company.
Procurement within organizations will have a new role in the future – as a facilitator and “enabler” of sustainable practices and production methods that will establish themselves beyond their own department. The “Sustainable Development of Products” helps you to set a sustainable path in your procurement organization. Together with our network partner milani design consulting we assess which critical changes to your supply chain infrastructure as well as product design are required to facilitate and support the defined sustainability goals. You receive support in sustainable product design and the use of sustainable raw materials, enabling you to make your entire supply chain and all lifecycle phases of your products more sustainable.
The decisive success factor for sustainable supply chain management has often been neglected up to now: It is purchasing managers who have to implement sustainability in their daily business. A competency model for sustainability in purchasing developed on a scientific basis starts precisely here and serves as a basis for targeted training and personnel development strategies. What exactly are competencies for “sustainability”? Investigating this question was the goal of the research project by Prof. Dr. Lydia Bals and Dr. Heike Schulze.
Based on research results and through a survey of experts from companies in different industries and scientists in the field (Delphi study), they have developed a competence model for sustainability in purchasing. Let us advise you on how your employees can be made fit in the various competence fields.
"Through the TALENT-net ESG Check we received valuable insights and the first important results regarding sustainability in our procurement. In addition to these inputs, interesting discussions were held in the direction of new business models and the topic of "financial impact" was included. The "Purchasing Sustainability Strategy" created forms a good basis for the targeted management of the key categories and their suppliers with regard to ESG criteria. Over the next 12 months, the roadmap will help us to consistently make our procurement more sustainable in order to ensure future requirements from customers, suppliers, compliance and investors. We very much appreciated the close and efficient exchange with the TALENT-net partners and thank them for their high level of professionalism."
