The process for Buyers is straight-forward and we’re on hand every step of the way.
Firstly, please Register Your Interest. We will need some simple information about your organisation.
Secondly we would like to understand the scope of service you require. Including an understanding of your suppliers, your areas of focus, process and timing. With that information, we can provide you with a CIPS Sustainability Index service to best communicate, support and register your suppliers.
At this stage, we will provide you with terms of service to capture your required scope. Remember the scope is driven by you - and we accommodate your requirements. Once you’re signed up, you will get secure access to the technology platform and access to the summary information of already registered suppliers. For those suppliers which are approved as your suppliers, you’ll get access to detailed information at a question by question level.
Then we can start onboarding your remaining suppliers. If you want to do this, then we can help with templates and process information. Or, we can quickly and cost-efficiently get it done for you using our experienced shared services supplier communications centre. See our Supplier Onboarding Services.
Finally, as your Suppliers’ sustainability credentials get scored, you get on-line access to customisable dashboards, scorecards, peer benchmarks and insightful analytics to monitor and trend your ongoing sustainable purchasing objectives
