Benchmark ESG® Named a Representative Vendor

Supplier sustainability applications help companies assess and monitor suppliers’ ESG performance to reduce risk exposure and drive improvements. Chief Procurement officers should use this research to assess essential capabilities and representative vendors available in this market.

“Supplier sustainability applications enable organizations to collect and assess supplier performance on sustainability requirements covering environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

Key Findings and Recommendations

  • Adoption of supplier sustainability applications to enable sustainable procurement is not yet mainstream but is accelerating.
  • The vendor landscape for supplier sustainability applications is extremely fragmented. Vendor capabilities and focus areas vary significantly, and are aimed at supporting buying organizations at different maturity stages.
  • Prioritize vendors that highlight supplier experience management as part of their value proposition. Survey fatigue and a lack of value to the supplier organizations will affect supplier adoption of these applications.
  • Choose a vendor that can support current strategy goals but can also support future needs.
