Sustainable value chain
Customers increasingly demand sustainable products and services—and a responsible approach to business practices across the entire value chain.
More and more customers are judging the value of the goods and services through the lens of their values – from buying electric cars to sustainably sourced clothes made in factories with ethical labor practices. Shareholders, employees and other stakeholders are joining in these demands. Companies need to respond now.
Today, value chains stretch around the world. It’s no longer enough for companies to focus only on what they control directly. Customers will hold them responsible for any slip ups around their products, even when those mistakes are made by a partner company.
For organizations to meet their customers’ expectations and be truly sustainable they must ensure responsible business practices inside their own organization and across their entire value chain. That means making sure that their own product designs, plants, warehouses, suppliers, sub-contractors, transportation providers and others adhere to highest environmental, social and governance practices on a global basis.

To become more responsible businesses, companies need to address sustainability across their value chains by continuously improving the delivery of trusted, net zero and circular engineering, procurement, manufacturing and after-sales service.
To gain the trust of stakeholders, organizations must make their value chains transparent using tools such as blockchain.
Value chains must be reinvented as net zero and from there find ways to become net positive.
Organizations must shift from linear processes to closed-loop, circular processes that minimize waste.
