Procurance is a turnkey solution for brands, retailers and other value-chain partners to manage the sustainability of their supply chains.
The Challenge and Opportunity
Ensuring sustainability of key products and ingredients, from coffee, palm oil and sugar to cobalt, cotton and apparel, is challenging.
Opaque and complex supply chains perpetuate serious environmental and human rights issues. Beyond their intrinsic harm to humans and the environment, these issues also create significant reputational risks to companies, missed opportunities to build a brand with significant customer segments and can have implications as far-reaching as talent loss and legal consequences stemming from a growing body of international laws from the UK Modern Slavery Act, to similar laws set by the US and UN.
Who We Work With
Procurance provides solutions to companies that source and produce products across a number of industries including food and beverages (including coffee, tea, juices and pulps, sugar, corn syrup, palm oil, beef, seafood, palm oil, etc.), personal care and beauty, apparel, paper products, and consumer electronics. Procurance’s unique ability to provide a wholistic view across a company’s entire supply chain makes it particularly valuable to companies seeking to monitor sustainability across multiple ingredients.
Major brands, retailers and investors, such as McDonald’s, Walmart and Blackrock, have begun to respond with concrete commitments to invest and source according to ethical standards that apply throughout the supply chain.
