What Companies Say…

…about Indicators

For supply chains: “If our suppliers were actually tracking their performance and could demonstrate through their quantitative measures that they were leading in certain areas or that they were improving in areas or there were areas that they were wanting to improve–that obviously would be very useful to us in selecting partners/suppliers.”

For assessing leadership: “Quantitative indicators help us compare ourselves with our peers, regardless of what industry they are in.”

“When people track our performance, we want to demonstrate through quantitative measures that we are leading in certain areas or that we were improving in areas or that there are areas where we want to improve.”

For compliance: “We have an existing database we have developed for all of the indicators that our trade association wants us to report. We also use them for our own, more comprehensive sustainability report.”
