The NSPR aspires to be a catalyst to drive the general improvement of supplier sustainability performance and product development in Singapore. In support of this aspiration, the NSPR has embarked on a new initiative to get suppliers in Singapore to commit to reduction pathways for various sustainability metrics.
In 2020, the NSPR aims to identify at least 10 use cases for each of the selected consumption metrics for energy (in kWh), emissions (in kg CO2) and plastics (in kg), where organisations are able to get their suppliers to commit to a reduction pathway.
This document is intended as a guide for the NSPR to collate standardised data from NSPR members and non-members for sharing of best practices and the conduct of current and future NSPR research.
This is a limited-period initiative until 31 October 2020, or as directed by the NSPR.

Most people today recognise the environmental impact arising from the excessive use of plastics. Many companies have in the past few years, removed most of the bottled water consumption from their operations or retail points, stepped up sustainability efforts with increasing filtered tap water points and reusables options where practical. With new options emerging in the market, the current challenge for businesses is to identify suitable alternatives, with a fair understanding and consideration of the pros and cons of each alternative. This could include factors such as materials composition, packaging for delivery, water stress of origin countries, recyclability, etc. The considerations should take into account relevance to the organisation’s context.

Nearly all organisations need to purchase gifts and premiums from time to time. Despite this, sustainability risks arising from mismatched usability, bio-degradability and over-personalization are not uncommon, though they can be avoided. Procurement organisations with progressive sustainability thinking typically considers the materials used, right level of packaging, label, safety, etc. in their business requirements gathering and sourcing processes. In Singapore, there is an encouraging trend where suppliers have emerged to offer more sustainable choices with product differentiation that organisations can take advantage of.
