Companies that are considering the inclusion of their supply chain partners in their sustainability efforts. This could be due to domestic regulatory requirements like BRSR that mandates companies to dislose ESG data for 75% of upstream (i.e vendors, suppliers etc) and downstream (i.e dealers, customers etc) segments of the supply chain. It could also be due to the heightened expectations from companies to fulfil the expectations from their large B2B customers in other geographies. For example, entities established in EU are reaching out to their suppliers in India to furnish data supporting EU regulations like the CBAM, CSDDD, CSRD etc.
Within At Quest, we have realised the growing importance of the supply chain sustainability for a company. We have meticulously studied the supply chains of the 77 industries according to the latest SASB standards (released by ISSB in December 2023).
First, we conducted an analysis of industry relationships to map the B2B relationships between industries, and then analysed the matrix to generate infographics specific to each industry. The ESG heatmaps in these infographics contain rich data on prevalent problem statements across supply chains, and corresponding possible solutions across the innovations landscape.. This cuts down nearly 80% of the time and effort typically spent in exploring and evaluating ESG touchpoints. You need to add your own company-specific layer on top and you'd be ready to address your sustainability challenges from the word go.
