The ASCM Enterprise Certification for Sustainability aims to empower organizations to reach their goals, improve results and be more competitive in today’s global business world — through supply chain excellence. The framework is the world’s first comprehensive evaluation of a supply chain. This unique designation incorporates SCOR content and all bodies of knowledge from all ASCM certifications.
The Enterprise Certification for Sustainability standards are used to assess an organization’s alignment to the three pillars that make up the program. They also serve as the metrics to evaluate an enterprise candidate’s supply chain for certification. Even in advance of becoming certified, there are three immediate applications of the standards:
- As an unbiased tool to validate supplier quality, development, and/or selection
- To help identify gaps for supply chain continuous improvement
- To validate or update supply chain strategy
