Pacific National, Australia’s largest private rail freight operator, has partnered with Avetta to support its Procurement and ESG strategy commitments. Pacific National is leveraging the global Avetta best practice approach to ESG to develop and implement a strategic, managed approach to its sustainability-led initiatives.
“We’re excited to partner with Avetta to build on our supplier commitments to support our three pillars of ESG: emphasising social responsibility in our communities, minimising our environmental impact and protecting the health and safety of our employees throughout our supply base,” said Zelda Pretorius-Kovacs, Pacific National Head of Procurement.
Reducing Risk While Achieving Compliance Goals
For multinationals, up to 90% of their environmental footprint is in the supply chain. But most companies do not have the visibility into sustainability readiness and goals of each supplier. This situation increases the risks of unknowingly taking on unethical work practices, using protected resources and contributing to global climate change, leading to potential regulatory penalties, civil and criminal liability, and brand and reputation damage.
Avetta’s sustainability and ESG solution solves this challenge by providing suppliers with analytics, sustainability ratings and maturity scores based on specific ESG standards and goals, such as Value Reporting Foundation (VRF – formerly SASB), Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Key features of the solution that help companies to simplify their ESG compliance include:
According to McKinsey & Company, organisations that fulfill ESG criteria see an overall cost reduction of up to 10%. In addition, ESG-focused management hedges against possible risk factors surrounding regulations and policy changes. Members on the Avetta One platform outperform industry standards and also reduce administrative expenses on average by 75%.
“Suppliers using Avetta One can showcase their maturity in the ESG space, making them reliable partners to work with, as well as discoverable and attractive to clients from a financial investment standpoint,” said Adam Boyle, Avetta SVP APAC and Managing Director.
