Assessment

Q

Heading 4

(1) Evaluate the market for different types of recycled paper alternatives for the paper towel roll (this link has a list with all the globally available eco papers information - epd.canopyplanet.org).
(2) Analyze the existing or new suppliers who will provide these choices. Preference to suppliers with a green seal of UL/ECOLOGO certification.
(3) Conduct a cost analysis between the current paper rolls and recyclable alternatives (include processed chlorine-free options) to appraise the switch's viability.

Opportunity

Heading 4

Business:
Cost savings on waste management and alternative options purchased in bulk will result in savings.

Sustainability:
Jumbo rolls and bulk purchases will reduce packing waste, and the use of processed chlorine-free paper reduces harmful chlorine chemicals disposed into nature.

Strategy Build & Execution

Heading 4

(1) Finalize on the right paper choices for the purchase based on the analysis done earlier.
(2) Decide on the suppliers to reach out to based on the type of paper roll to proceed.
(3) Align company stakeholders (affected by this change) to make aware of the benefits of this change.
(4) Establish strict measures in place for the efficient disposal of the new recyclable paper rolls.
(5) Monitor the implementation acceptance and gather feedback through quality surveys from employees that use the new paper.

Supplier Negotiation & Contract

Heading 4

(1) The inclusion of a warranty clause with guaranteed quality during the contract establishment, as the alternative, might fail to meet the standard requirements.
(2) Ensure that suppliers apply and qualify for the ECOLOGO or Green Seal certification, and this confirmation needs to be monitored.

Supplier Performance & Management

Heading 4

Perform annual Supplier Relationship Review and are required for sustainability reporting in annual reviews. Maintain records of turnaround time, takeback program profit and loss reporting, purchasing and warehousing cost, average inventory level, and inventory variations.
Record and analyze the savings from the use of jumbo rolls instead of folded paper towels.

Perform an internal review after the program has been implemented to evaluate the commercial impact of large scale computer refurbishment, and environmental impact; compare to historical data.
