Developing supplier networks: How supply chains are going circular

Sophie Parsons, Senior Consultant at Greenstone, attended the resource efficiency event Resource held in London last week. In this blog, Sophie reflects on the role of supply chains in the circular economy.

Following the announcement of the EU Circular Economy Package at the end of last year, the transition to a stronger and more circular economy has become a hot topic. At Resource last week, organisations such as Rolls-Royce, Hewlett Packard and Jaguar Land Rover demonstrated how they aim to improve resource efficiency and gain greater circularity within their value chain.

State of supplier management survey

Paper_Files.jpgGreenstone has been providing non-financial reporting software and services to organisations for over 8 years, and through our clients we have witnessed the ever changing reporting landscape first hand.

The most active trend recently has been an increased focus on suppliers and supply chain risk. The key drivers for this have been increased direct legislation, evolving reporting frameworks and heightened sensitivity to third party risk from clients, investors and other stakeholders.

Material and robust – but is your sustainability data accessible?

At Greenstone, we are increasingly seeing organisations using sustainability reporting less as a necessary (and all too often stressful) annual process and more as a tool for analysing and monitoring ongoing performance. The merits of a sustainability report are well established and form an important part of an organisations’ communication with stakeholders about its past, present and future impacts on the environment and society. Underpinning this communication is data – data that needs to be robust, material and (most importantly) accessible.

Greenstone launches Modern Slavery partnership with Fifty Eight

The recent introduction of the Modern Slavery Act in the UK has generated a significant amount of interest and concern alike. Organisations appear to be aware of the Act, and are not only keen to understand what they need to do to in order to comply, but also how and what they should report year on year.

There has been plenty of clarification on the aims of the Act itself, its coverage and its requirements. However, what has not been so clear is what organisations actually need to include in their reports, what policies and practices need to be introduced and how to train their workforce.
