Sustainable best cost sourcing


Carbon penalties, local content requirements, climate / weather events and a changing global political landscape are putting pressure on global supply chains. To avoid significant cost increases, companies must transform their supply chains to be sustainable, resilient, and competitive.


Our sustainable best cost sourcing approach provides solutions for redesigning global industrial supply chains at best cost.

From global to local sourcing – a paradigm shift?

New external factors are putting pressure on global supply chains:

  • CO₂ pricing and the lack of understanding within organizations
  • Increase in local content requirements
  • Changes in the global political landscape


Booster effects, such as climate change impact or Covid-19, are multiplying this pressure and increasing the need for sustainable best cost sourcing.


Organizations worldwide need to reshape their sourcing strategy.

Many companies are flying blind

The multidimensional influences on supply chains, the uncertainty of those and the lack of appropriate tools are becoming the biggest challenge for organizations in short term.


The lack of understanding how these influences are impacting the total cost of ownership leads to reactive behavior rather than actively managed challenges. Consequently, supply chain cost will increase significantly – putting companies’ profit at risk.

What is the new total cost of ownership?

To actively master these new cost factors, companies need to answer two major questions:

  • What is the overall cost impact on Total Cost of Ownership?
  • What is the best cost sourcing approach and how to leverage local vs. global supply markets?

Active management of multidimensional factors using sustainable best cost sourcing

The solution to these new complications is complex. Alternating relations between the cost factors exist and are not always easy to comprehend. Increasing the transparency about the new cost factors and their multidimensional relationship is crucial for future success.


We are providing a structured success proven approach to comprehensively evaluate and reshape your supply chain, keeping best Total Cost of Ownership in focus. Stay competitive!
