BETTER BUYING SPECIAL REPORT on Purchasing Practices and Sustainability: What improvements are suppliers seeing?
June 23, 2021
As part of the last Better BuyingTM ratings cycle, suppliers were asked a number of new questions about how their buyers’ purchasing practices impact the “3 Ps”of sustainability – People, Planet, and Profit. The research focused on 4 key areas: Design and Development; investment in cost-reducing alternative technologies; expectations and incentives for CSR, compliance, and environmental sustainability performance; and the impacts of steep variations in month-to-month order volume.
The findings are summarized in a Better BuyingTM Special Report, Purchasing Practices and Sustainability: What improvements are suppliers seeing? published today, and reveal that some of the impactful measures companies can take are low cost, and require minimal changes to a brands workflow.
