New Coupa Innovations Help Businesses Comply with ESG Regulations
Coupa BSM platform expands ESG support to help customers comply with German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act
Businesses face increasing pressures from investors, consumers, employees - and now global regulators - to improve sustainability and social impact, yet a recent Coupa survey revealed that companies are suffering from data blindspots, preventing them from fully complying with ESG legislation.
"CEOs and business leaders possess the will to lead change and transform the way they conduct business, yet obstacles around data are causing them to fall short. This is where uniting the power of spend comes in," said
Coupa's Sustainable BSM solution helps businesses make more impactful spend decisions, and new capabilities announced at Coupa Inspire EMEA 2022 help companies improve sustainability and comply with ESG regulation.
Businesses will benefit from:
- Tailored Risk Assessment for Supply Chain Due Diligence: Customers can now request and manage supplier ESG compliance information specific to the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act through a digital assessment, and create reports to submit to German regulators.
- Visibility into Supplier Risk and Compliance Data: Customers have full, real-time visibility into supplier health, risk, and sustainability information when conducting sourcing events, as well as directly in supply chain digital twins, enabling proper vetting to ensure compliance.
- Collaboration Across Teams: Customers can operationalize risk management and embed it throughout procurement, supply chain, and compliance operations to rid silos. Coupa surfaces comprehensive supplier risk management information in context of every single spend decision at the time of decision making.
