Purchasing is a powerful tool that can bridge the gap between product development and corporate sustainability. It is no secret that procurement has a significant impact on the environment, whether it is through the sourcing of raw materials or the transportation of goods.

Therefore, by incorporating sustainability criteria into the procurement process, such as ethical sourcing practices, energy efficiency, and waste reduction, purchasing can play a key role in identifying more sustainable options for product development. This, in turn, can help reduce the overall carbon footprint of a company and cut Scope 3 Emissions.

By prioritizing sustainable procurement practices, companies can not only minimize their environmental impact but also improve their reputation among customers and stakeholders.
