Railsponsible is an industry initiative focused on sustainable procurement, with the aim to continuously improve sustainability practices throughout the railway industry supply chain. The initiative is open to all railway operators and companies across the railway industry value chain, along with key industry associations, that share its vision, mission and commitments.
The initiative aims at improving environmental and social practices of companies of the railway sector and railway sector supply chain through best practice sharing and capability building. It also aims at improving efficiency in the analysis of supply chain CSR practices, and to promote greater transparency to meet increasing stakeholder requirements.
Railsponsible is facilitated by BSR, with the support of EcoVadis, who together bring strong expertise in collaborative industry sustainability initiatives, as well as sustainable procurement collaborative platforms.
Railsponsible was launched in March 2015 by the Chief Procurement Officers of six leading companies of the railway industry.
