Companies across the world are facing increased pressure from consumers, regulators, and investors alike to address sustainability impact in the supply chain. To account for supply chain ESG issues in a meaningful way, companies will need deeper insight into their complex, multi-tiered supply chains across a variety of sustainability metrics.
According to Gartner, “supplier sustainability applications help enterprises assess and monitor their suppliers’ responsible sourcing performance to reduce their risk exposure and drive improvements.” As Gartner goes on to say, “companies facing increased pressure from stakeholders to account for ESG issues from the supply chain are deploying these to automate, augment and scale their responsible sourcing programs.”
