Regulations (PPN 06/21) require government departments, bodies and agencies to request their suppliers' Carbon Reduction Plans and ensure suppliers are committed and planning to achieve Net Zero.
IAND captures carbon impact and determines a supplier's rating according to the reduction in Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions (tCO₂e) over time.
Innovation is a core part of UK procurement regulations, as determined in PPN 06/20 and in the Green Paper for Procurement. IAND determines a supplier's innovation score by the amount of grant funding received and investments made in research and development projects.
Diversity and inclusion are at the centre of innovation. IAND derives a company’s diversity rating by capturing the percentage of women in the upper quartile pay grade at their company.
UK procurement regulations (PPN 06/20) aim to make the the UK the best place to start and grow a business by requiring diverse and local supply chains. Knowing a supplier’s company type and size empowers you to build a local supplier ecosystem and help companies scale-up. IAND derives the ESG IMPACT metrics for size and type from a company’s headcount. Each company self-declares their VCSE status.
The supplier's headcount is required to create their overall rating on carbon and innovation and helps highlight the size category of their company.
