We work to continuously advance sustainability in the supply chains we manage, striving to make a positive impact on people and the planet.
Avendra’s Sustainable Sourcing Strategy
I. Implementing sustainable sourcing policies and procedures
We build sourcing strategies, policies and procedures that manage how we approach the supply chains we manage – through things like our Business Conduct Policy and continuous training for our sourcing team as well as set expectations for sustainability ranging from asking detailed questions at the point of selection, to baseline requirements at contracting, to continuous assessment and monitoring.
II. Supporting supplier diversity
Supplier diversity, equity, and inclusion are key business imperatives for delivering success to our clients, consumers, and communities.
III. Focusing on critical issues and high-impact categories
We concentrate our efforts on critical issues of climate, human rights, and deforestation, and focus on categories that have a high impact.
IV. Assisting customers on their unique journey
We support our clients and customers wherever they are on their sustainable sourcing and supplier diversity journey.
V. Participating in collaborative initiatives
Our unique industry position allows us to participate in, and leverage, multiple cross-industry initiatives and learnings to the benefit of all our stakeholders.
