Firms are focusing sustainability efforts on their own operations but neglecting risks in their supply chain, according to a report.

EcoVadis’ Business Sustainability and Risk Index showed of the four factors examained in the index, sustainable procurement was the weakest-performing area. 

Sustainable procurement was lagging as “companies continue to focus on societal impacts linked to their own operations, while risks that may be lurking in their supply chains are not prioritised to the same degree”, said the report.
