Working alongside suppliers on sustainable projects
22 February 2018
New partners have joined the Sustainable Supplier (Duurzame Leverancier).
Together with suppliers, the initiators and partners of Sustainable Supplier want to prove quickly and effectively that projects and processes can be done more sustainably.
For clients, proven sustainability is a must. Achieving this demonstrability is exactly what the Sustainable Supplier offers its members. To do this, LCAs (Lifecycle Analyses) are performed on a project or process. Their quality depends on the measures adopted. To demonstrably increase the quality of LCAs, the Sustainable Supplier makes its entire database of CO2 reduction tools available to its 3,500 members. The database is part of the renewed website.
