Driving sustainability improvement, together

Today, consumers, employees, and investors are putting increasing pressure on businesses to minimize negative social and environmental impacts and to create business value without compromising on these. Procurement can take the lead in driving this change. However, for many businesses, understanding and balancing ESG opportunities is challenging.

At Efficio, we put sustainable procurement approaches at the heart of everything we do. Together, we help you determine opportunities, build your team‘s capabilities, and adopt strategies that enable you to maximize ESG improvements without compromising on cost management.

Today’s key challenges

Business Case and Planning

Changing Procurement to be ESG and cost-led requires a strong business case, a plan for change, and a trusted roadmap that the business fully supports.

Data and Supply Chain Resilience

Relevant and attainable metrics are critical to measuring and managing progress against ESG targets and building supply chain sustainability and resilience in an unpredictable global environment.


The legislative and voluntary reporting burden grows in complexity daily - failing to deliver public ESG commitments can quickly damage the reputation of a business.

Measurable Improvement

Targets are just the start. New tools, skills, and approaches are needed to improve Carbon, Diversity & Inclusion, Waste, Localised Supply, and many other parameters.

Moving towards more sustainable procurement

Sustainability must be embedded throughout procurement processes. At Efficio, we use tried-and-tested methodologies to create resilient, transparent, and green supply chains and to target improvements across all ESG metrics. We often start by carrying out a thorough Opportunity Assessment to determine key risks and opportunities before creating a strategy to deliver improvements. 

Drawing on over 20 years of experience, we believe that taking targeted action is vital for any business. By capturing and accessing data through eFlow, our digital platform, we will help you take control of your supply chain and focus on actions that make a tangible difference. 

Equipped with this insightful data, actionable ESG strategies, and a team of experts on your side, you will be perfectly positioned to see continuous improvement across your supply chain, both now and in the long term.

The CarbonCube® uses procurement spend data to calculate carbon emissions. Spend data is categorised, and emissions factors are matched to the categorised spend to calculate emissions.

This approach simplifies carbon emissions baselining, target setting, and measurement.

  1. Increase visibility: Leverage existing spend data to derive greenhouse gas data and identify hotspots.
  2. Set targets: Define science-backed carbon reduction targets.
  3. Simplify: Reduce the administrative burden of increased reporting requirements.
  4. Deliver: Build actionable strategies, deliver measurable results, and streamline reporting.
  5. Enhance: Enhance the dataset with supplier-specific data as it becomes available.

Efficio’s London headquarters holds the BS EN ISO 14001 certification.

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps organisations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.

It requires that an organisation considers all environmental issues relevant to its operations, such as air pollution, water and sewage issues, waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and resource use and efficiency.
