Supply chain management offers significant opportunities for clients to reduce their carbon footprint through consideration of not only in-house operations but also that of their supply chain. Through sustainable procurement policies and practices, not only will the environmental credentials of the product improve but the inherent value of the product often increases. Sustainability within the supply chain extends to both in-house supply and demand, such as consideration of operational waste materials and planning for product end-of-life.
AESG can assist clients in the assessment of their existing supply chain, providing detailed analysis of not only suppliers’ products and materiality but also of their own internal processes and policies. Through such detailed assessments, AESG’s diverse team including chemical, environmental and services engineers, offer innovative and effective solutions to facilitate supply chain optimisation. A cost benefit analysis of each recommendation made provides the client with clear, definitive advice allowing for informed decisions to be made.
