Supplier Sustainability: An ESG intelligence solution

Leverage granular product-level ESG data to improve operational decisions, achieve sustainable supply chains, and power differentiated customer experiences

Meeting rigorous environmental, social, and governance (ESG) and climate-related pressures now and in the future can be challenging and costly—especially when considering rapidly shifting B2C and B2B consumer buying orientation toward sustainable products, investor expectations to demonstrate progress toward established climate ambition, and—now—the Security and Exchange Commission's (SEC) proposed Scope 3 emissions reporting guidance. Critical to addressing these customer, investor, and regulatory hurdles is visibility into an organization's extended supply chain. Deloitte's Supplier Sustainability solution helps companies establish a path forward.

Why the time to act is now

Expanded sustainability scope

As the ESG landscape transforms to meet current and future regulatory requirements, organizations have an elevated need to enhance visibility into their extended value chains. They must also achieve greater resiliency against potential risks such as outsized Scope 3 emission footprints, poor labor practices, and the use of conflict minerals. (Of note, Scope 3 emissions can account for 80%+ of an organization's emissions inventory).

Sustainability-minded customers

Organizations that are unwilling to adjust to the new paradigm of lifestyle choices and buying decisions driven by sustainability-based values will likely experience a loss of wallet share as the focus on corporate responsibility is shared across gender lines and generations.

Financial reputational risk

Organizations failing to provide accurate ESG disclosure across risk dimensions and commitments may be subject to costly legal action, and failure to progress their sustainability journeys could lead to low ESG ratings which can translate into higher insurable risk premiums and an increased cost of capital.
