For the second year in a row AIM-PROGRESS collaborated with BSR for the annual benchmarking survey about the state of responsible sourcing in the fast moving consumer goods industry.
The study seeks to show what the sector is doing on making their supply chains more responsible and how collaboration can drive efficiencies, encourage companies to innovate and act with ambition, and deliver greater impact in the world. Here are five key findings from the 2016 AIM-PROGRESS Member Benchmarking report:
This survey reveals that company efforts on responsible supply chains are maturing, as is the collaboration architecture that supports them. Members of AIM-PROGRESS said the collaboration has helped to strengthen their responsible sourcing programs. “We have benefitted substantially from learning from other companies and sharing resources as we have ramped up our program. We use the [survey] insights as a tool to engage our teams and drive further progress,” said AB-InBev Sustainability Manager Clare Flannery. WestRock Director of Supply Chain Compliance and Sustainability Christopher Campolongo added that this kind of work gives AIM-PROGRESS members “greater visibility into common topics that can be improved on a global scale.”
