To design out or eliminate wasting in the supply chain
Review purchasing records and supply chain agreements to determine opportunities to design out or eliminate wasting from vendors. Take at least one action that reduces waste from a vendor.
Catalogue supply chain and conduct a review of the products and materials purchased from each vendor. Review all materials for opportunities to redesign practices to minimize waste. Open a dialogue with vendor partners to refuse products and materials that will be wasted at the facility, require them to take those materials back, or to select less wasteful options.
- Narrative describing the review process and the resulting changes in agreements or products/materials purchased
- Documentation highlighting adjustments made to vendor contract(s) or changes in product purchasing (purchasing reports, receipts, invoices, etc.). Meeting minutes or written communications requesting the vendor to make changes may also be provided.
For repeat events, the actions must be completed at the first event certified. The review does not have to be repeated at subsequent events if the related waste reduction action(s) is still occurring. Refer to the credit entry in the TRUE Rating System for further requirements.
