Supplier Sustainability Ratings in Action: Strategies and Tactics to Engage Procurement Teams and Suppliers to Drive Results

Hiawatha 1

Getting from vision to action in sustainable purchasing means tackling the tough challenges of measuring supplier performance, shaping new business behaviors, and motivating enduring improvements in sustainability practices. This session will present case examples of the ways in which sustainability ratings have been put into practice to engage buyers and suppliers through a standardized assessment system implemented to drive results. The panelists will bring their perspectives on team and program structures designed to engage purchasers and category managers to help them integrate sustainability into their work; team roles; the integration of sustainability ratings to purchasing and other processes; examples of other actions that seek to reinforce desired behavior; and the benefits to suppliers of using ratings and scorecards to measure and boost sustainability performance.
