Sustainable tender management

Integrating sustainability criteria in tender management – an effective way to increase supply chain sustainability

Tendering is a complex and competitive process that involves planning, preparing, submitting, and negotiating bids for contracts. However, it is also a crucial opportunity to ensure that the commitment to environmental and social responsibility will be maintained along the supply chain.

Organizations can emphasize sustainability by incorporating environmental criteria into the procurement process. Such criteria might include sustainable products, practices, and relevant certifications that help businesses select suppliers aligned with their sustainability goals. This approach helps reduce the environmental footprint throughout the supply chain and conserve resources. Additionally, by assessing suppliers’ commitment to social and governance responsibility, businesses can select suppliers that comply with labor laws, pay fair wages and follow ethical practices – including the responsible sourcing of raw materials and respect for human rights. As a result, businesses contribute to the development of more holistically sustainable global supply chains.

As an additional benefit, businesses that practice sustainable tender management can contribute to a more sustainable global economy. By clearly defining sustainability requirements in tender documents, businesses encourage the development of more innovative and sustainable products, services, and processes through multiplier effects.
