Watch our Webinar: Reinvent your supply chain in 90 days

Understanding your all-new baselines will be a must and the ability to accurately project what-if scenarios will mirror your company’s ability to survive. Efficiency will reign supreme.Forward-looking companies have already begun to think beyond their immediate re-mobilization efforts and are in the midst of strategizing for medium- and long-term viability. Driven to be better prepared for abrupt, unexpected change, many now recognize the need to control future decision making through a framework that marries data, measurement, strategy, and accountability. To build resilience, businesses need to reimagine now their path forward, starting with committing to the new Manufacturing 4.0 rules that will accompany supply chain sustainability.We have assembled an impressive group of leading industry experts and practitioners who will share their experiences and their strategies as we prepare to do business in a post-pandemic era. You will not want to miss out as they present their perspective on Industry 4.0 within the context of COVID-19.

Green IT and Data

We can easily claim that our Green procurement programs can reduce expenditure and waste; increase resource efficiency; and influence production, markets, prices, available services and organisational behaviour. Also known as green or environmental
purchasing, green procurement compares price, technology, quality and the environmental impact of the product, service or contract.

Green is In

Green sourcing can also assist organisations in meeting multi-lateral requirements and guidelines which International Standards Organisation and other bodies have established. After reviewing current purchasing practices and policies of an organization along with life cycle assessment of the environmental impacts, the outcome is a regularly reviewed. Our “Green” services utilise fewer resources, are designed to last longer and minimise their impact on the environment from cradle to grave.

Green Infra

Investing in green infrastructure comes armed with many social, economic and environmental benefits, for water storage, purification and flood prevention, cooling urban heat islands, improved health, well-being and access to nature for people, as well as space and habitat for wildlife. Our strategies can incorporate both the natural environment and engineered systems to provide clean water, conserve ecosystem values and functions, and provide a wide array of benefits to people and wildlife.

Go green with our envious solutions

Our green infrastructure solutions can be applied on different scales, from the building level, to the broader landscape level. On the local level, green infrastructure practices include rain gardens, permeable pavements, green roofs, infiltration planters, trees and rainwater harvesting systems. On a larger scale, it impacts the preservation and restoration of natural landscapes like forests, floodplains and wetlands. Our Green infrastructure strategies will boost a company’s economy, enhance community health and safety, and provide recreation, wildlife, and other benefits.

Green Sourcing

As all companies are notching up their climate commitment game, their ambitions to source materials are also soaring! Be it green steel, recycled aluminum, or recycled plastic—that have lower emissions intensity than their conventional equivalents, production capacity for many pf these low-emissions materials, appears to fall far short of future demand.

Our strategies hence suggest that for supply chain decarbonization, companies should first understand both the emissions generated during the manufacturing of all the components and materials they now procure and their exposures to supply, demand, and price volatility for these inputs. We believe that charting a sourcing strategy to cut emissions spans over multiple time frames.

Green Supply Chain and Manufacturing

Integrating sustainable environmental processes into the traditional supply chain, like supplier selection and purchasing material, product design, product manufacturing and assembling, distribution and end-of-life management, our green supply chain involves value creation through the operations of whole chain. Though reducing air, water and waste pollution is the main goal, but it also enhances
the firms’ performance in terms of less waste manufacturing, reuse and recycling of products, reduction in manufacturing costs, greater efficiency of assets, positive image building, and greater customer satisfaction.

As you demand, so we supply

By implementing Green supply chain, the applications of the key sustainable development strategy outstand. Our module emphasizes how green practices can be adopted in firms to mitigate the environmental degradations and increase the economic and operational performance. We help our clients incorporate Green practices in supply chain management like:

Green material sourcing
Green marketing
Green management
Green distribution and warehousing
Green manufacturing
Ecological design
Green transportation and reverse logistics
Renewable energy and biofuels Introducing green thought to hone your supply chains can help you save the environment and create a healthier bottom line. It is not just the ethical thing to do but also financially rewarding for the business.

Benchmarking

With the prioritization of ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) and the intense focus on climate change, Benchmarking has become a must to establish baselines, define industry best practices, identify risks and opportunities, and create a competitive environment within an organization. Our process can yield valuable data that helps companies evaluate and prioritize improvement opportunities, as well as, support lifecycle assessments and disclosure requirements.

Our competitive benchmarking can help determine whether or not the sustainability strategies are effective, provide recommendations for closing potential gaps, and assess the business value to be gained by addressing those gaps. Our process also provides a guidepost, so stakeholders, investors, customers, and industry peers have access to meaningful, standardized industry comparisons.

Materiality and Maturity Assessment

Our materiality and maturity assessment is best used as a strategic business tool that can benefit if applied as a sustainability lens to business risk, opportunity, trend-spotting and enterprise risk management processes. Rather than creating a separate one, our inclusive materiality process, can deliver valuable benefits, such as:

  • Ensuring business strategy takes account of significant social and environmental topics
  • Management of sustainability issues is embedded in wider business processes
  • Identifying trends on the horizon, such as water scarcity or changing weather patterns that could significantly impact a company’s value
  • Enabling different functions of the business to develop new products or services and stay ahead of competitors
  • Highlighting areas that are important but not currently addressed
