This is where our sustainable sourcing options can come in. Sustainable sourcing is the integration of social, ethical and environmental performance factors into the process of selecting suppliers. It includes purchasing sustainably preferable products and services.
Sustainable sourcing is needed because supply chains are continuing to expand globally into developing countries for lower costs and larger production capacity. Now companies are increasingly making sustainable sourcing an essential part of their procurement and supply chain management processes. With brands needing to be more socially and sustainably conscious than ever before, sustainable sourcing is a great way to create a more sustainable product.
The most common is ethical sourcing, which is defined as the process of ensuring the products being sourced are obtained in a responsible and sustainable way. It is a component of sustainable sourcing but not the same thing.
Almost any textile you can think of — from cotton to leather to nylon — has social and environmental impacts risks at every level of its supply chain: from the growing or extracting of its raw material inputs, to the processing it takes to turn those inputs into the materials we recognize. But when it comes to managing risk and replacing harmful materials with preferable ones, it can be tough for companies to know where to begin.
