Supply & Demand Chain Executive Honors JAGGAER with 2021 Green Supply Chain Award
- Press Release
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, December 17, 2021 : JAGGAER was today named as one of the recipients of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2021 Green Supply Chain Awards, in recognition of its efforts to help customers achieve their sustainability goals. The award, which is in its thirteenth year, is open to suppliers and providers of supply chain solutions as well as companies working to achieve sustainability within their operations. JAGGAER first won the award in 2019.
The award honors JAGGAER for helping companies integrate green factors easily and effectively throughout the entire source-to-pay cycle. Procurement and supply chain teams tap the JAGGAER ONE software to:
- Achieve their sustainability objectives through digitalizing the paper-based source-to-pay cycle, for example, through the generation of digital contracts with electronic signatures.
- Demonstrate and quantify their sustainability successes and performance.
- Ensure that suppliers meet their sustainability and wider environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals by building the relevant requirements into the RFP (request for proposals) process.
- Monitor and quantify ESG gains through multi-tier visibility across the supply chain, such as transparency into the green practices of their suppliers and their suppliers’ suppliers.
JAGGAER has also created a set of its own internal “green” initiatives. These include the reducing its carbon footprint through the continuation of measures introduced during the pandemic, such as restrictions on any business travel, unless strictly necessary, and support for home working. Over the past two years JAGGAER has closed ten physical offices while doubling its total headcount.
JAGGAER has an ongoing partnership with environmental ratings agency EcoVadis to help move forward in greening its own operations and those of its customers. The company is hiring a full-time ESG specialist to improve JAGGAER’s performance on sustainability year-on-year. It will publish its first annual ESG report in early 2022.
“We are fully committed to pursuing our own green agenda and supporting our customers in pursuing theirs. Our aim is to become the most sustainable procurement software business worldwide,” said JAGGAER CEO Jim Bureau. “We are currently seeking to achieve the highest certification status from EcoVadis and to become a zero-carbon emission enterprise. Commencing January 1, 2022, all of our services will be provided via Amazon Web Services, which will become fully carbon neutral by 2025.”
JAGGAER’s lead investor, Cinven, is committed to responsible investment, which ensures that JAGGAER will continue on this path.
“We are pleased to receive this recognition of our efforts from Supply & Demand Chain Executive,” Bureau added.
