The majority of our sustainability challenges sit in our supply chains. From emissions, water, and biodiversity, to supplier diversity and child labour free supply chains, it is indisputable - we cannot operate sustainably without our suppliers.
But getting an accurate picture of supplier sustainability is notoriously difficult, with lack of transparency over suppliers’ sustainability performance, unwieldy data from disclosure framework providers, and difficulty integrating this data with existing procurement platforms. This lack of centralisation and transparency makes working on improvements in collaboration with suppliers especially difficult, limiting organisations’ ability to make concrete progress on issues like scope 3, water security, sustainable raw materials, and more.
That’s why we built Vizibl Supplier Sustainability Management.
Drive robust supplier sustainability management with tools that support better measurement and baselining of current performance, increase alignment around shared goals, facilitate effective collaboration, and leverage supplier collaboration to transform unsustainable categories into brand new opportunities.
Create supplier sustainability programmes with both custom sustainability frameworks and those from common disclosure providers like CDP, and set a roadmap of improvement targets across a portfolio of suppliers.
Set goals for your sustainability programmes and link them to Projects in Vizibl’s Collaboration Workspace, allowing you to manage, track, and prove improvements in supply chain sustainability over time.
Pair Supplier Sustainability Management with Vizibl’s Innovation Hub functionality to leverage supplier sourced-innovation, enabling you to transform categories that threaten your sustainability efforts.
Measure, align, collaborate, and transform your supplier sustainability performance, all in one place. Establish supplier sustainability programmes across portfolios of suppliers, underpinned by both common disclosure systems and custom frameworks. Set a roadmap of improvement targets across this cohort of suppliers or at the individual supplier level, and establish quantitative goals for your overall programme. Collaborate on improvement by linking these goals to Projects and Initiatives in other areas of the Vizibl platform, and prove your progress with robust reporting and customisable widgets.
Quickly set up multiple supplier sustainability programmes across different segments of your supply base and add a portfolio of suppliers to each. View performance individually, or get a rolled up sustainability score across the entire programme.
Attach common sustainability disclosure frameworks such as CDP and SBTi or create your own custom framework, enabling robust measurement of supplier sustainability and removing the friction from data aggregation, performance baselining, and target setting.
Mitigate the friction caused by infrequent updates to sustainability performance data and take proactive action towards improvement. Set a roadmap of incremental targets according to your chosen frameworks across the portfolio of suppliers in each sustainability programme.
Measure programme performance according to metrics beyond disclosure frameworks by setting custom goals (number, percentage, etc.) with starting values, end targets, and annual improvement targets.
Attach Vizibl Projects, Initiatives, and Opportunities to programmes, allowing you to link collaborations and innovations in the workspace to sustainability programme performance, all in one place.
Create custom reporting widgets by selecting your desired suppliers and sources, allowing you to segment and layer data to drive new insights into performance highlights and areas for improvement.
As we move through the 2022 reporting cycle alongside CDP and new scores are released in the winter, the relationship will underpin the Supplier Sustainability Management module within the Vizibl platform.Find out more
