Create a sustainable supply chain

We turn sustainability into a strategic advantage

Sustainability is in our DNA. 

Our education, workshops, advising and training programs always include a focus on sustainability. End-to-end supply chain sustainability assessments, sustainability education, and sustainability best practices and metrics are some of the ways we support you to operationalize sustainability. 

Sustainability in supply chain is the practice of minimizing environmental impact and maximizing social and economic benefits, within the full life cycle of a service or product, from sourcing raw materials to delivery of the final product. This includes reducing waste, improving energy efficiency, and using renewable resources. It also involves ensuring that suppliers and partners adhere to ethical standards and labor laws.

Get Started

ASCM's sustainability standards are aligned with globally accepted standards – so you won’t have to worry about multiple or competing metrics. As a signatory of the UN Global Compact, ASCM supports and advocates for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by businesses and nations worldwide.
