6. Supply chain

As companies are required to take on a duty of care, they will require higher environmental standards from their suppliers.

ISO 14000 series will make this a world-wide process.

Organisations who fail to respond to the demands of their corporate customers will lose orders.

Some organisations have clauses in their environmental policies that relate to purchasing.

Suppliers to BT can use their standard with their own suppliers to ensure that environmental performance is considered throughout the supply chain.
