Sustainable Development

Our Insight Platform, combined with our extensive experience in
gathering supplier data, provides our customers with supply chain clarity

Stakeholders are increasingly expecting businesses to be transparent about their operations when it comes to ethical and environmental issues

Sustainability 

Who is affected?

All businesses, no matter what size or what sector they operate in, are now expected to report on operations under their direct control, as well as the actions of businesses within their supply chain.

In order to report on and manage supplier performance, data needs to be meaningful so that it can be used to help drive continuous improvement, manage risk and demonstrate compliance.

Next steps...

To obtain meaningful information from suppliers, the right questions need to be asked. Businesses need to gather and analyse a range of quantitative and qualitative data from often complex supply chains. Some example questions can be found below:

DO YOU KNOW...

Where

Your products and components have come from?

How

They have been produced?

Who

Has been involved in their production?

What

Substances are contained within them?

How Valpak can help

We have extensive experience gathering data from suppliers and have developed an Insight Platform to provide businesses with the clarity needed. This Platform serves to build an overview of suppliers’ compliance with legislation and corporate social responsibility priorities, allowing our customers to focus action on priority areas for improvement or with their key suppliers.

Typical modules covered by the Platform include UK Plastics Pact, packaging recyclability, palm oil, Modern Slavery, Conflict Minerals, REACH and RoHS.

Our support options include:

  • Consultancy support to understand corporate and legal data reporting requirements
  • Development of online questionnaire to capture and build an evidence base of supplier policies, procedures and standards against requirements
  • Administration support to manage data collection from suppliers

 

  • Development of a secure online Insight Platform to track supplier responses, present responses and review associated risk ratings across suppliers
  • Consultancy support to help interpret the data, identify areas for improvement and help to implement processes to address any gaps or issues

If you are interested in a free trial of our Platform, or simply wish to talk through your requirements with one of our experts, please do not hesitate to contact us via our enquiry form, email us or call 03450 682 572.
