Enterprise Certification for Sustainability

Global Recognition for Sustainable Supply Chain Practices

Building a sustainable enterprise continues to be a challenge in the face of climate change. However, business leaders are still making sustainability a priority, with supply chain playing a critical role.

The ASCM Enterprise Certification for Sustainability is the industry’s first and only corporate supply chain designation that measures social responsibility, economic sustainability, and ecological stewardship. 

Even without being certified, measuring your company against the standards within the certification serves as an unbiased tool to validate supplier quality, development, and/or selection. The standards can help you identify supply chain gaps and provide a pathway to update supply chain sustainability strategies.

98% of CEOs believe that sustainability is core to their role.
