6 steps to take towards successful supplier management

For many organisations the supply chain is becoming an increasing area of focus, and this is not just because of the increasing risks posed by more global and complex supply chains, but also due to the opportunities presented.

In recent years there has been increased scrutiny placed upon those organisations whose supply chains contain sub-standard suppliers, producers or factories. Whereas previously issues with working conditions, for example, may have been directed at employers or owners, the new norm is that those at the top of the supply chain should be exerting a more positive influence.

SupplierPortal expansion - contract management

Greenstone is updating its SupplierPortal software to make it even easier for clients to manage their suppliers. We have listened to client feedback and seen the increasing need for all-encompassing supplier management processes and software.

The result is the introduction of more ‘Buyer’ (client) functionality, which will ensure that all suppliers and contracts can be managed in one place, and a risk-based approach can be applied to the gathering and analysis of specific supplier information.

Webinar: The 5 Key Steps to Take Now to Address Supply Chain Risk

Earlier this year, Greenstone conducted extensive research to understand how companies are identifying and mitigating supply chain risk.

The survey asked 1000 senior decision makers about their perception of supply chain risk. It found that increasing global focus and the impact of regulation has resulted in a growing business requirement for supplier due diligence processes.

The results will now be shared during a complimentary online webinar. The webinar will be held on two dates at the start of November, and will explore how companies are reacting to the increased scrutiny placed on their third party relationships. It will also highlight the five key steps organisations can take now to successfully address supply chain risk and ensure supplier compliance.

Why Sustainable Supply Chains Matter

This article was recently published on Environmental Leader. 

Environmental managers and chief sustainability officers are increasingly looking to their supply chains to conserve natural resources and reduce carbon emissions.

Considering supply chains are responsible for up to four times the greenhouse gas emissions of a company’s direct operations and many suppliers operate in water-stressed areas of the globe, this makes sense from an environmental savings standpoint.

To this end, we’ve seen major corporations like Apple push for more rigorous environmental standards and renewable energy use across its supply chain — and publish regular supply chain audit reports detailing suppliers’ progress — and Nike creating an entirely new apparel supply chain company that will “embed sustainability and transparency into the business.”

State of Supplier Management 2016

In the current non-financial reporting landscape there is a heightened focus on understanding your supply chain. As a result, organisations are increasingly evaluating the performance of their suppliers against a wide spectrum of non-financial criteria and monitoring the associated risks.

In order to better understand what is driving this behaviour and how companies are identifying and mitigating supply chain risk, Greenstone conducted the State of Supplier Management 2016 survey.
