Sofidel has achieved the international standard for sustainable procurement – and is one of the first in Italy to do so.
The standard aims to simplify supply chains and make them more sustainable. It also seeks to increase quality through the implementation of procurement policies.
For Sofidel, it means they can reduce the risk of poor performance where sustainability is an issue. It also makes them a more responsible company for efficiencies where possible.
As of 2018, over four out of five of Sofidel suppliers ranked sustainable (82%), while a significant proportion (44%) achieved levels of particular excellence. The figures show a slight increase on 2016, when 78% of the suppliers achieved a sustainable ranking. Also, 41% were described as “excellent suppliers”.
