2018 SRM report: Sustainable SRM – Nurturing Growth in a new Climate

Sustainable SRM was chosen as our theme for this year’s report for two reasons. Firstly, organisations are under increasing pressure to become more sustainable, and in most cases the majority of the social and environmental impact comes through suppliers.  Only by managing relationships with them can we improve practice through the value chain.

Secondly, if supplier relationship management is the route to more sustainable business, as well as other benefits, is it important to embed it in day-to-day business practice.
 

Ten years of research reveal the secret to sustaining SRM. This research will share how leading organisations are more likely to make sustainability one of the many benefits they gain from SRM.
