PwC was engaged to develop an approach to cascade environmental criteria into purchasing decisions across the organisation
We worked with the client’s sustainability team to design and facilitate a cross-functional workshop to educate buyers from the client’s various divisions, including Marketing, Finance, Facilities and Operations, on the benefits and scope of green procurement.
A clearer understanding of green procurement concepts enabled the team to develop green criteria for their respective purchasing decisions.
PwC was asked to review the client’s processes for sourcing fish- a key raw material for them and one where prices were rising and fishing quotas were reducing supplies.
We undertook a full analysis of every stage of the supply chain, including market, value chain and competitive cost analysis.
We proposed improvements that would not only save money for the clients, but maintain the company’s competitive position, as well as its ethical and environmental standards.
