Sustainable Operations

Sustainability is not a trend; it is a business requirement.

Commitment to sustainability is more than a project. It requires a cultural shift, transformation of core processes and introduction of key measures that support a circular economy. As customer demands and regulations evolve, we enable our clients to identify and address the sustainability risks across their supply chain and operational footprint.

Protiviti’s Sustainable Operations Consulting practice helps you move from theory to action by implementing operational processes that align with the expectations of your customers, investors and employees while also complying with rapidly evolving environmental standards and regulations. We are worldwide change agents ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come.
