OUR SERVICES

“Supply chains continue to be one of the most important levers for business to create positive impact in the world.” – UN Global Compact

Across the sustainability spectrum – from Science Based Targets to circular economy and modern slavery – one key theme always emerges: every dollar you spend has an impact. A big proportion most organisations’ environmental and social impacts derive from their operations and supply chains, and as such procurement lies at the heart of any effective sustainability strategy.

Our job is to make navigating what can feel like a daunting task manageable and achievable. From the outset, our services are designed to help you clearly understand your social and environmental risks, allowing you to focus on those that matter the most. We take the time to understand our client’s teams, their challenges and needs to ensure we deliver solutions that are realistic and accepted. Our experience spans a wide range of organisations – from global events and multinational corporations to local councils – ensuring that we are well placed to help clients of all kinds build the systems and processes they need to meet best practice standards align with legislation such as Australia’s Modern Slavery Act.
