Alliance Systems and Processes

Monthly Calls

  • Monthly call with all members to review and progress the Alliance working group items and agenda.
  • Monthly Executive Committee meetings make the necessary decisions for Alliance progress.

Annual Sustainable Sourcing Conference
Annually the Alliance invites members, non-member utilities and suppliers to join together for a 1-1/2 day event to review the Alliance progress and to listen and learn the latest information for a sustainable supply chain.

Annual CPO Roundtable
In 2015 the Alliance launched a CPO Roundtable, to raise the visibility of the business case for supply chain sustainability, and to engage top utility management in the drive to adopt sustainability best practices in supply chain activities and supplier networks.

Products and Services
Monthly best practice-sharing webinars in which utilities present or showcase a product or service strategy that is helping to reduce the company's environmental footprint in some way.

Supplier Performance
Annual survey of top suppliers from all utilities to gauge performance on key sustainability performance indicators. A single survey is distributed to all suppliers and results are tracked over time to provide performance trends and benchmark data for the individual Alliance members.
