Supply Chain Optimization

Next Gen Supply Chain Leadership
Leverage ESG to reduce risk, build resilience and eliminate the blockages to collaborative innovation

Most private companies and family enterprise operating entities are either preferred suppliers, or aspire to be preferred suppliers, to larger sourcing companies. Many of those sourcing entities are multinational organizations with complex networks and dynamic supply chain operations. For the private companies selling their products and services, those sourcing company relationships can be their largest customers, delivering a majority portion of their revenue.

As the global ESG wave transforms financial markets compliance standards, private company suppliers are expected to take greater ‘ownership’ of their relationships with all the component players in their business, including any facilities that produce the products that their sourcing customers buy from them. This prescribed level of interdependence is the new ESG norm, cascading corporate values throughout supply chains.

Sourcing company customers of private companies now expect that their policies will be operationalized downstream to even their third-tier suppliers to close the loop on stakeholder expectations around ESG issues while concurrently ensuring sound top and bottom-line management. Private company suppliers must also be upfront in their dealings with the sourcing customer, its auditors and audit programs as well as other third parties.
