Who we are:

We are a leading consultancy with the aim of inspiring sustainable business. Many of our clients are sector leaders on sustainability and supply chain issues and we are proud of our reputation for leading the thinking in this area. In summary, we:

+ Run the award-winning Supply Chain Sustainability School, including the industry-leading Fairness, Inclusion & Respect (FIR) programme.

The Tool, which you will be supporting, helps our clients to efficiently collect sustainability data from their business divisions, project teams and supply chain organisations. The information is crunched to produce sustainability dashboards with key performance indicators measured against our client targets. By using our platform, organisations can now ensure their teams and supply chain partners comply with their environmental and socio-economic standards. This is driving transparency and accountability to better deliver on sustainability strategies.
