A nod to corporate social responsibility is no longer acceptable for today’s hospitality consumers and corporate clients and Beacon recognise this. That's why, in direct response to this, Beacon has formally re-positioned its procurement service, to advise businesses on how to develop, manage, measure and communicate sustainable purchasing strategies to improve. Good procurement practice is the key and Beacon can help businesses unlock this.
Beacon follow these three simple steps:
- Review (understand what the business is doing now, review current practices, supply chain and pricing);
- Consolidate (explore the possibilities to streamline products, suppliers and deliveries); and finally,
- Communicate (tell your customers what you are doing)
Simply put, it (sustainability) makes good business sense. Sustainability leads to reduced consumption of resources and therefore reduced costs. It positively hits the bottom line.
