Instructions to review content 

Review the best practices included in the tiles for the committe you are part of. This includes:

  • the best practice title & content
  • the metrics impacted (energy, GHG emissions, waster and/or water)
  • the intrinsic value (green/gold levels)

Add comments in the public comment box on the best practice details if you believe the best practice is not relevant anymore, or if either the title, content, metrics impacted, or intrinsic value needs to be updated.

If you think there are new best practices to be added to a tile under review, please note it and send your notes through the contact us form so that it can be considered for inclusion at a content committee meeting.

Content Committee Kick-off Meeting
date:
April 23rd 2021

The working group thus recommend:

  1. Broaden the TSP Governance & management section to a more inclusive ESG Governance, while keeping the other sections focus on industry-specific environmental practices.
  2. Prioritize G&M practices as levels to attain in order to both, reduce the complexity of answering a TSP assessment, and calibrate scores in the presence of N/A answers.
  3. Introduce follow up practices. Example: "Do you have a employee code of conduct?", "If yes, how often are employees trained on it?", "How often is the employee code of conduct reviewed and edited?", etc.

Feedback from EUISSCA utility members:

  1. The Governanance & Management section should stay focused on environmental sustainability. The rationale is that other groups at each utility deals with diversity and broader governance matters. These groups have their own reporting systems. Broader ESG responses in the Alliance assessment context would not be used. To lower the burden on suppliers, broader ESG best practices are thus deemed out of scope.
  2. In the light of the RFx survey (a streamed down versions of the Governance & Management section + a few extra questions), it is appropriate to classify Governance & management best practices by levels of maturity. It would also shed light on "N/A" answers which could be valid and ones which should really have been a "No".
  3. Follow on best practices, for example follow on to "Have a environmental sustainability policy" such as "Train employee on that policy at least once a year", etc. is favored in order to assess the actual engagement of suppliers on these matters.
  4. Questions with regards to "standard" reporting framework such as CDP, GRI, SASB or certifications (ISO 14001 or else) would give the Alliance a broader understanding of where the supply chain is moving as a whole.
