The partnership grants the 125,000+ suppliers within Avetta’s network access to Sustain.Life’s resources for improving supply chain ESG performance.
Avetta, the leading provider of supply chain risk management (SCRM) software, today announced the addition of Sustain.Life as an Avetta Marketplace Partner, offering suppliers an affordable and effective solution to swiftly improve their sustainability performance —no matter the level of their experience. With Sustain.Life, the 125,000+ suppliers within Avetta’s network can: calculate and track their carbon emissions for free, and utilize expert guidance and tools to reduce those emissions. With more than 100 step-by-step guides for improving sustainability at all levels of business operations, Sustain.Life enables businesses to easily implement ambitious sustainability strategies aligned with leading certification and reporting standards.
“We’re excited to partner with Sustain.Life to make its suite of ESG tools available to our vast network of suppliers,” said Jitesh Chanchani, SVP, Alliances At Avetta. “We are committed to equipping our clients and their suppliers with the capabilities required to implement impactful sustainability strategies that mitigate environmental harm while reducing costs, and Sustain.Life is a critical component in our ESG offering.”
Data from the Carbon Disclosure Project's (CDP) 2020 Global Supply Chain Report estimates that an average company's supply chain greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are about 11.4 times greater than those generated by the company's direct operations. The CDP has also found that companies could face $120 billion in additional costs from environmental risks stemming from their supply chains across the next 5 years. As companies across industries face increasing pressure from investors, customers, partners, and employees to improve their social and environmental impact, they need tools to measure, reduce, and report their environmental footprint—including the carbon emissions and waste associated with their supply chains. Sustain.Life allows businesses to develop a thorough understanding of their baseline environmental impact, develop action plans, and track their initiatives' progress at a reasonable price.
“We are proud to partner with Avetta to make Sustain.Life accessible to suppliers within the Avetta network,” says Annalee Bloomfield, CEO of Sustain.Life “As companies across sectors increasingly prioritize improving ESG performance, our partnership with Avetta will enable more companies than ever to mitigate their environmental impact, reduce costs, and distinguish themselves to customers, investors and recruits.”
