Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has always been an integral part of Avendra’s value system, and our approach to CSR is a continuous journey. In the beginning, our approach leveraged many of the values we had at the onset of Avendra’s founding, like integrity and collaboration. Over time we built upon these important facets to create a more formalized and comprehensive approach. In 2012 we committed to a five-year plan centered on two goals related to driving sustainability within our supply chain.
Our next five-year plan, announced earlier this month, is an even more aggressive strategy that engages more stakeholders and seeks to address more areas of challenge. “We are introducing new concepts and goals into our strategy, while still expanding on the work that we began in the previous set,” said Hamzah Abu-Ragheb, Avendra’s Sustainability Manager. “With our new strategy, I believe Avendra will become an even more effective corporate citizen, while also staying true to its core focus, as we offer our customers’ innovative supply chain management to meet a broad range of needs.”
