In a recent interview with Supply Chain Digital, Pierre-François Thaler, co-CEO of EcoVadis, talks on the importance for companies to have a sustainable supply chain.

“For companies that work with multiple suppliers around the globe, going sustainable can seem like a daunting task, but approaching the process step-by-step can help create a positive mind-set and culture. The first step has to be creating a sustainable culture within your own organisation… Sustainable operations are no longer nice to have, but a necessity for doing business and avoiding social and legal backlash. Sustainability is increasingly top of mind for consumers, and they will likely take their business elsewhere if a brand is found to be in violation of their ethical standards. In addition to increased social consciousness, the regulatory consequences that non-compliant businesses face are immense.” says Pierre-François.
