About Us

Powering the Shift to Responsible Supply Chains

Our Mission

At SupplyShift, we’re committed to helping businesses create more ethical, transparent, and responsible supply chains. We believe that, when properly managed, a company’s supplier network can deliver incredible value for the company, the greater economy, and can play an important role in changing our world for the better.

 

Why?

 

Today’s consumers are different. They care about the origins of the products that they buy. They want to buy from companies that reflect their values, and businesses are becoming more conscious about the impact they have on our world. Now, what’s good for the bottom line is also good for people and planet. Responsible brands are driving economic growth. So we built a platform to bring together buyers, suppliers, industry experts, and the best metrics possible to help companies drive improvement and make more responsible products.

 

 

Our Mission

Our Story

SupplyShift was co-founded by Alex Gershenson and Jamie Barsimantov — two PhDs in Climate Science and Environmental Economics.

 

While consulting with companies to help them understand their carbon footprint, Alex and Jamie saw a change in corporate sustainability thinking. Businesses were starting to expand their focus from only internal operations into the supply chain, where the greatest impact is found. They also noticed a gap in the way businesses managed their supply chains. Companies were spending too much time managing data, leaving them no time to drive the change they wanted to see in their supply chains.

 

So Alex and Jamie put together a passionate team of professionals to build a solution — a solution that helps businesses work efficiently with their suppliers to improve the products they make and sell. Because without tools to help streamline the process, you’ll never get to the important part — transforming your supply chain. We believe that with the right resources, companies will drive responsible practices throughout the supply chain, and they’ll increase the value of their business in the process.
