Aligning procurement with purpose

As sustainability continues to rise on the global agenda, it is becoming increasingly important to align with the evolving values of shareholders, customers, and employees. Organizations are progressively aligning their purpose with more sustainable thinking and creating value by doing so. The challenge is, that most of the impact and risk is within the supply chain, putting procurement in the box seat to drive the change.

Procuring with purpose

Proxima’s Sustainable Procurement service brings the expertise and know-how required to assess, kick start or accelerate purposeful procurement and lasting positive change. Understanding that every organization is different, we bring three distinct services which can be deployed separately or sequentially. They reflect that procurement may be pioneering sustainable initiatives or collaborating with a business that demands change. We provide:

  • Expert insight into market developments, other organizations, technology, and suppliers
  • Assessment frameworks to help benchmark, inform needs and build a case for change
  • Supply market, sourcing, and change management expertise

Delivering positive change – The Proxima approach

The common thread across the services is a team of subject matter experts who have relevant and up-to-date experience across a range of suppliers, organizations, and initiatives. Knowing where to start is often a barrier to launching or embedding sustainable procurement. Proxima will work closely with you to understand your situation and needs and how best to achieve your goals. Our service stack includes;

  • Sustainability Assessment – understand risk exposure and opportunities to drive change
  • Sustainability Acceleration – targeted projects to get started or drive deeper impact
  • Sustainability Transformation – embedding purpose into your procurement and supply chain working practices
