    Supplier Selection Assessment Disaster Recovery Toolkit – Utilization, Solutions, Advantages, BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal):

    Supplier Selection

    The sustainable supplier evaluation and selection process involves assessing potential suppliers based on their sustainability practices and choosing the most environmentally responsible option.

    1. Develop clear sustainability criteria: This ensures that suppliers are evaluated on their eco-friendly and socially responsible practices.

    2. Conduct site visits and audits: By physically visiting supplier facilities, companies can verify their compliance with sustainability standards.

    3. Utilize third-party certifications: Partnering with reputable organizations can help companies identify suppliers who meet sustainability requirements.

    4. Implement a supplier code of conduct: This outlines specific expectations for suppliers in terms of sustainability and social responsibility.

    5. Create a scorecard system: Developing a scoring system allows for a more structured and consistent evaluation process.

    6. Use technology for tracking and reporting: Utilizing software and systems can facilitate data collection and monitoring of supplier sustainability practices.

    7. Consider long-term partnerships: Building long-term relationships with sustainable suppliers can lead to greater commitment and investment in sustainable practices.

    8. Foster communication and collaboration: Open communication between companies and suppliers can help identify areas for improvement and drive positive change.

    9. Incentivize sustainability: Offering rewards or incentives for sustainable practices can encourage suppliers to continuously improve their sustainability efforts.

    10. Monitor and evaluate performance: Regularly monitoring and evaluating supplier performance can ensure ongoing compliance and identify areas for improvement.

    CONTROL QUESTION: How is the sustainable supplier evaluation and selection process structured?

    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:

    In 10 years, our goal for supplier selection at our company is for the sustainable evaluation and selection process to be fully integrated into our supply chain operations. This means that all suppliers, regardless of their industry or location, will undergo a thorough sustainability assessment before being considered as a partner.

    The sustainable supplier evaluation and selection process will be structured in the following ways:

    1. Comprehensive Sustainability Criteria: We will develop a set of comprehensive sustainability criteria that all suppliers must meet in order to be considered. These criteria will include not only environmental factors, but also social and governance factors, ensuring a holistic approach to sustainability.

    2. Supplier Self-Assessment: In order to streamline the process, we will require all potential suppliers to complete a self-assessment questionnaire. This will allow us to gather information on their sustainability practices, certifications, and policies.

    3. Third-Party Audits: To ensure the accuracy of supplier self-assessments, we will conduct third-party audits of top suppliers. This will provide an independent verification of their sustainability practices and help us identify any areas for improvement.

    4. Sustainable Supplier Ranking: Based on the results of the self-assessment questionnaire and third-party audits, suppliers will be ranked on their sustainability performance. This ranking will be used in the final decision-making process for supplier selection.

    5. Continuous Monitoring: The sustainable evaluation and selection process will not end once a supplier is selected. We will implement a system for continuous monitoring of suppliers′ sustainability practices to ensure they maintain high standards over time.

    6. Collaboration with Suppliers: We believe in working collaboratively with our suppliers to improve sustainability practices. Therefore, we will establish partnerships with top-ranked suppliers to help them achieve their sustainability goals and continuously improve their practices.

    Our long-term goal for supplier selection reflects our commitment to sustainability and responsible business practices. By implementing a structured and rigorous sustainable evaluation and selection process, we aim to create a more sustainable supply chain and positively impact the environment and society.

    Supplier Selection Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:


    Client Situation:

    Our client, a multinational manufacturing company in the automotive industry, has recently committed to implementing sustainable practices and reducing their environmental impact. As part of their sustainability strategy, they have set a goal to source all of their supplies from sustainable suppliers by 2025. However, with a global supply chain and numerous potential suppliers, the client realizes the need for a structured and effective supplier selection process to achieve their goal.

    Consulting Methodology:

    To help our client achieve their sustainability goal, our consulting team has developed a four-step methodology for sustainable supplier evaluation and selection.

    Step 1: Identification of Criteria

    The first step in our methodology is to identify the criteria that will be used to evaluate suppliers′ sustainability practices. This includes both environmental and social factors such as energy use, waste management, labor practices, and community engagement. Our team utilized the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) developed by the United Nations as a framework for identifying these criteria.

    Step 2: Data Collection and Analysis

    Once the criteria have been identified, our team works with the client to collect data from potential suppliers on their sustainability performance. This can include surveys, audits, and third-party certifications. We also utilize industry benchmarks and best practices to compare suppliers′ performance against their peers. The collected data is then analyzed to identify gaps and areas for improvement.

    Step 3: Supplier Ranking and Selection

    Based on the analysis, we develop a sustainability scorecard for each supplier, ranking them on their overall sustainability performance. The scorecard also highlights specific areas where suppliers excel and areas that need improvement. A supplier sustainability ranking report is then shared with the client, enabling them to make informed decisions on which suppliers to engage with and which suppliers require additional support to improve their sustainability practices.

    Step 4: Ongoing Monitoring and Improvement

    The final step in our methodology is the development of a monitoring and improvement plan. This includes setting Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to track suppliers′ sustainability performance over time and identifying areas where the client can support and collaborate with suppliers to help them improve their sustainability practices. Our team also provides ongoing support and guidance to the client to ensure the implementation of sustainable practices throughout their supply chain.


    As part of our engagement, we provide the following key deliverables to our client:

    1. Criteria for evaluating suppliers′ sustainability performance
    2. Supplier sustainability scorecards and rankings
    3. Supplier sustainability ranking report
    4. Monitoring and improvement plan
    5. Ongoing support and guidance for sustainable supplier management

    Implementation Challenges:

    While implementing the sustainable supplier evaluation and selection process, our team faced several challenges, including:

    1. Obtaining accurate and reliable data from suppliers: Some suppliers were hesitant to share their sustainability data, which led to delays in the evaluation process.

    2. Lack of standardized reporting: Suppliers used different metrics to report on their sustainability performance, making it challenging to compare them accurately.

    3. Limited resources: Our client had a limited budget allocated for sustainable supplier management, which required us to be strategic in our approach.

    To overcome these challenges, our team developed a clear communication plan, established partnerships with third-party organizations to conduct audits, and utilized technology solutions to streamline data collection and analysis.


    To track the success of our engagement, we have identified the following KPIs:

    1. Number of suppliers engaged in the sustainability evaluation process
    2. Percentage of suppliers meeting the sustainability criteria set by the client
    3. Improvement in supplier sustainability scores over time
    4. Number of suppliers receiving support and collaborative efforts from the client to improve their sustainability practices
    5. Overall reduction in the client′s environmental impact through sustainable sourcing activities.

    Management Considerations:

    Sustainable supplier selection is not a one-time process but requires ongoing efforts and support from the client. It is essential for the client to establish a sustainability governance structure and allocate adequate resources to ensure the success of their sustainable supplier management program. This includes regular monitoring and reporting on suppliers′ sustainability performance, as well as ongoing collaborations to support suppliers in their sustainability journey.


    Through our structured supplier evaluation and selection process, our client has been able to identify and engage with sustainable suppliers while providing support to those who need it. By setting clear criteria and KPIs, and implementing an ongoing monitoring and improvement plan, our client has made significant progress towards achieving their goal of sourcing from sustainable suppliers by 2025. Our methodology can be applied to other industries and companies seeking to improve their sustainability practices through supplier selection.
