Engagement for Supply Chain Sustainability

Engagement for Supply Chain Sustainability cover

Pressure from the public and stakeholders is driving companies to creatively and proactively engage with their supply chains to reduce risk, leverage opportunities, and address sustainability challenges. Unfortunately, many of the frameworks designed to support companies with these efforts push company-supplier collaboration as a de facto ideal, despite how incompletely this captures the complexity of actual company-supplier relations.

Developed as a joint effort between the University of Cambridge Judge Business School and the Embedding Project, this guide can help corporate procurement and supply chain professionals to better understand how supplier engagement spans a spectrum from more collaborative to more coordinated; reflect on their existing supplier engagement approach(es); identify the approach(es) best suited for addressing relevant sustainability issues; and learn how to leverage engagement for the benefit of supply chain sustainability.
