Responsible sourcing integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks into the process of selecting suppliers. This practice is a fast-growing discipline within procurement and supply chain departments, and serves to address continuity for a company and the marketplace where they deliver products.
The ultimate goal of responsible sourcing is to build strong, long-term business relationships across the supply chain and the sales channel. Working toward this has become part of many company’s business structure and strategic model.
Delivering on responsible sourcing, the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) developed a global certification system that addresses material ESG aspects for the concrete industry. A robust certification system without equal by other industry certifications, the CSC defines the framework and criteria for sustainable concrete. For more information on the CSC, click here.
