Sustainability

Responsible business choices preserve the future

A responsible business has a positive impact on the economy, society and planet; and at PFSCM we believe that responsible business practices are the foundation for a sustainable organization. To drive sustainability we measure and evaluate all our processes and use data to make sound decisions based on facts. Our ISO 9001:2015 certified Quality Management System guides us in continuously improving our work to deliver cost-effective, environment-friendly and enduring supply chain solutions. 

Our sustainability commitments:

Economic

We save our clients time and money by implementing best practices, and proven strategies for the procurement and delivery of products. The returns are recuperated by donors and reinvested into health programs

Environment

We only buy products that are fit-for-purpose, lasting and meet strict quality requirements; and we partner with 3PLs who calculate and report  their logistics emissions, and embrace emission reducing techniques. 

Social

We strive for equity, diversity and inclusion and have developed policies to help us achieve this goal. We are also dedicated to understanding and improving social aspects that affect the wellbeing of our staff.

PFSCM is a participant of the UN Global Compact:

PFSCM is a participant of the UN Global Compact and we have taken practical actions to support the UN Global Compact Principles. We have consciously reworked our ISO 9001:2015 certified Quality Management System to include the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact in our documented Standard Operating Procedures, Working Instructions, Policies, and Guidelines. Our processes and procedures have repeatedly been inspected to ensure the organization advances the UN Global Compact Principles. We align ourselves with Sustainable Development Goals by only working with suppliers and 3PLs who share our vision and commitment to economic, environmental and social sustainability.

PFSCM serves donors, governments, NGOs and other humanitarian organizations. As a procurement services agent and 4PL, we help our clients to improve access to quality, health products in low- and middle-income countries. This mission touches on many aspects of the global health supply chain, and offers us the opportunity to be involved in the advancement of several Sustainable Development Goals. While sourcing, moving and storing health products we influence the development of infrastructure, policies and systems that are essential for: Good Health and Wellbeing (3), Responsible Consumption and Production (12), Climate Action (13) and much more.
