Buying high quality products at a good price – this is the main goal of purchasing. Recently, the supplier moved into focus – not only by increasingly stringent laws such as the Supply Chain Act. The topic of sustainability is therefore becoming more and more present for procurement.
Corporate sustainability and competitive prices? One prejudice here is certainly that sustainability only costs money and is not the main focus for customers. There is also little knowledge about sustainable procurement strategies and processes in education. Even though public interest in the topic has increased, a recent study by the JARO Institute has shown that there is still a low priority in companies.
Implementing a new procurement policy and strategy can lead to more sustainable procurement. Ecolabels like Ecovadis monitor the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of companies along the supply chain. By sourcing from certified suppliers, the purchaser can make sure that products are sourced from a company that invests in sustainable programs. To ensure that this is possible, the purchasing department must receive the best possible support from the management. All measures should be implemented consequently. The management of Petrex GmbH is fully supporting this mindset.

Fluctuations in raw material prices are a challenge for every company. High differences can significantly influence the planning of production and the calculation of sales prices. The first industry forecasts for 2023 have already been made. Also, the company RadarRadar (formerly Tradesparent) has given its assessment.
The Dutch provider is an expert in data integration and data harmonization in the raw materials industry. Existing data are collected, checked and thoroughly evaluated for providing specific forecasts.
Results in detail
According to RadarRadar, the market outlook for 2023 is challenging as the market structure and participants change significantly. Geopolitical issues, consolidation of the raw materials industry and integration lead to less transparency and, in turn, more market protection. Strong price volatility is expected to continue in the future and has not yet peaked even with declining market liquidity. The topic of intangible resources are also widening the gap between the material and financial markets and increasing the risk of hedging. As a result, there’s a need for reliable on-demand insights into both material and financial holdings. Companies have to expect evolving regulatory requirements and increasing market uncertainty.
