Master Biodiversity with Insights on Material Impacts
SupplyShift, in collaboration with Pure Strategies, introduces the Biodiversity Assessment – your compass in the intricate landscape of biodiversity hotspots, dependencies, risks, and opportunities in your supply chain. Harness the insights to align with the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), comply with legislative requirements like the upcoming Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and drive impactful sustainability initiatives.
What You’ll Achieve:
Gain a strategic advantage by understanding key biodiversity issues. Elevate your sustainability efforts from mere box-checking to becoming a pioneering force for biodiversity conservation and resilience.
GAUGE SUPPLIER MATURITY
Utilize Supplier Maturity Scores to assess your vendors’ preparedness and efficacy in managing biodiversity impacts. From environmental governance to risk mitigation—know where your suppliers stand.
PINPOINT BIODIVERSITY HOTSPOTS
Identify critical environmental risk zones within your supplier network. Garner ecosystem and industry-specific insights to refine your sustainability efforts where they matter most.
EMPOWER & ENABLE SUPPLIERS
Equip your suppliers with the resources they need to enhance their sustainability measures, thus strengthening your entire supply chain.
See the Bigger Picture
Understand that your business’ relationship with nature is a two-way street. Using the Biodiversity Assessment, you can not only map your environmental impact, but also gauge how your operations depend on the environment and how changes in the ecosystem may affect your business.
Lay the groundwork for compliance reporting and biodiversity target-setting, all while gaining a view of the larger landscape. Step into a future where data-driven insights steer you toward both regulatory alignment and addressing environmental impact in a meaningful way.
Example Output: Nature-Related Risks
- Changes in sentiment towards the organization/brand due to impacts on nature
- Changes in the state (Condition and/or extent) of ecosystems on which the site is dependent on or has an impact (E.g. soil condition, water condition, air condition)
- Changes to legislation/regulation aimed at achieving nature-positive outcomes/reducing negative-nature outcomes (E.g. trade restrictions. taxes, permits and allocations, protected areas/OECMs)
- Changes to species the site is dependent on (E.g. composition, population size, level of connectivity associated with species ranges)
- Decline in brand and value proposition due to nature-performance being perceived worse than competitors
- Financial risks (Multiple reasons possible)
- More stringent nature-related reporting obligations
- New monitoring technologies used by regulators and other stakeholders
- Requirements to transition to more efficient, resilient and less environmentally damaging technologies (E.g precision agriculture, protein technologies)
- Shifting customer/investor values or preferences to products and/or services that are nature-positive/have lower impacts on mature
- Stakeholder conflicts e.g. due to competition for ecosystem services
- Volatility changes to costs or materials
