The “Unchaining Value” report on sustainable supply management, released by Global Compact, UNEP and Sustainability in September 2008 contains a very interesting analysis of the value of Sustainable Supply Management, and case studies from leaders such as Unilever, Nokia, HP, Ikea.EcoVadis is featured in the report, as one of the “databases providing buyers with a one-stop tool for evaluating suppliers against a set of sustainability criteria”. Unchaining Value aims to spur the pursuit of greater environmental and social sustainable supply management within corporate global supply chains.The report seeks to begin a process of uncovering the barriers and challenges to driving sustainability improvements in global supply chains through sustainable supply management, as well as spotting the opportunities for achieving greater impact through partnerships and capacity-building.The publication addresses the ambition of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) to find ways to increase practical know-how, develop skills and capacity in developing countries, and raise levels of innovation and collaboration across and between supply chains.In future, options for further cooperation in a collective effort between sectors and stakeholders will be examined, mindful of the role that UN-business cooperation can play in advancing learning, good practice innovation and the improved application of recognised standards.
