Sustainable sourcing is touted as the future for procurement and supply chain management. It is known as the procurement of products and services beyond traditional cost and supply metrics with environmental, social and ethical issues in mind. With almost nine billion people in the world, demand for natural resources is already around 30% higher than the earth can regenerate. This represents a supply risk to many industries. Building sustainable supply chain will establish competitive advantage, stimulate innovation, and increase productivity.
