Why sponsor a supplier obtain a Speeki Sustainability Score™ and get a scorecard rather than demand an ISO Certification?

icon-plus

While having an ISO Certification demonstrates high business standards, the process to obtain one is lengthy and requires a team commitment for at least 12-18 months. In contrast, the time needed to conduct a Speeki Sustainability Score™ assessment and get a scorecard is a few days. For most suppliers (but not all), a request to show an ISO certification might be too much, whereas a rigorous but rapid and low-cost analysis provided by a Speeki Sustainability Score™ assessment might be a better option.

How is a scorecard different from an attestation or certification?

icon-plus

Certification is performed by an organisation accredited to issue certificates of compliance with a published standard. Speeki, through its Europe operation, Speeki Europe, is accredited under International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) rules to certify organisations against certain standards.

Each Speeki Sustainability Score™ is issued based on a quicker and less formal process, and reflect the expert judgement of Speeki’s own experienced experts. While a scorecard is a simpler and faster solution, it will typically carry less weight than an independent rating or certification.

How could a company use its Speeki Sustainability Score™?

icon-plus

Speeki Sustainability Score™ could, if you wish, be used for a range of internal and external marketing purposes to give your business an edge. They also give you an efficient and cost-effective benchmark of how a company stacks up against best practices with which you can adjust your corporation’s policies and systems.

For example, your supplier can use its Speeki Sustainability Score™ to demonstrate its commitment to managing risks and opportunities in ESG effectively or use the topic as part of an external branding strategy. Consumers would be persuaded to overcome potential scepticism related to a brand, and more investors could be attracted. For internal branding, results may be used to boost staff retention rates and minimise turnover. The information can contribute to a sense of achievement and pride — motivated staff are more committed and productive.

As an inexpensive gap analysis, the Speeki Sustainability Score™ might be used as a guideline for improving systems related to the selected topic. For instance, fostering more of a freedom and safety culture for staff could facilitate implementation of a Whistleblowing programme, or an existing diversity, equity, and inclusion system would be of greater benefit if it incorporated more staff-led initiatives.
