Fostering supply chain sustainability helps companies manage risk, satisfy customer demand, create resilience, and deliver efficiencies that can save money. Global supply networks provide greater flexibility than ever before, but result in greater variability, too, in terms of environmental and social impacts. As a result, each link in your supply chain potentially represents an opportunity for improved sustainability performance, reinforcing your brand reputation and value.


As a pioneer and leader in the assessment and certification of operations for a variety of industry sectors, SCS has an in-depth understanding of the factors influencing sustainability performance across the supply chain. Our advisory services range from initial design of a sustainable sourcing strategy to developing specific criteria for supplier audits. We translate your goals and criteria into a field or factory-level verification program, from pilot phase to program launch, leveraging SCS’ global network of auditors. With SCS, you can better understand the risks in your supply chain and be assured that your company is applying the most responsible sourcing strategies.

The process can vary depending on industry, product type, and company goals, but usually begins with SCS conducting a Needs Assessment to determine the level of engagement. This iterative process takes an in-depth look at current sourcing practices in order to define appropriate goals and steps forward. The final outcome is a comprehensive proposal with deliverables designed to meet the stated responsible sourcing objectives.
