Sustainable supply chain

We are building a sustainable and ethical supply chain to reduce the environmental and human impact of the products and services we buy. To do this, we partner with suppliers who share our vision and values and are committed to protecting human rights and eliminating modern slavery.

Our net zero commitment

At Sage, we are committed to taking action on climate change and reducing our environmental impact. We have set ambitious targets to achieve this and we need your help as our supplier to join us on this journey. Here are some key points to know about our climate goals:

  • Sage aims to cut our carbon emissions by half by 2030 and reach net zero by 2040.
  • Our targets are verified by the SBTi, a global initiative that promotes science-based climate action.
  • Our supply chain is a major source of our emissions, so we need our suppliers to join us and reduce their environmental impact.
