P&G Launches Supplier Scorecard
May 12, 2010
May 11, 2010 – Procter and Gamble announced yesterday their launch of the Supplier Environmental Sustainability Scorecard, which will be used to measure and improve the environmental footprint of key suppliers. The scorecard will specifically focus on energy use, water use, waste disposal and greenhouse gas emissions.
The company’s main goals in launching the supplier scorecard are to enhance their supply chain collaboration, measure and improve key environmental sustainability indicators, and encourage the sharing of ideas and capabilities to deliver more sustainable products and services for its consumers. In working toward their last goal, P&G will be making their scorecard available for use by any organization to help create supply chain consistency and transparency across industries.
The scorecard is specifically designed to focus on, and encourage, year-on-year improvement -- regardless of a supplier's total size or the current stage of its sustainability program. Suppliers will also have a full year to prepare to report their data before it can adversely impact their supplier rating with P&G and in the future, P&G will integrate the scorecard into their annual supplier performance measurement process.
In a similar move to an IBM announcement made last month, P&G will be expecting its suppliers to push this scorecard throughout their own supply chains. To download the complete P&G scorecard, click here.
