How does sustainability assessment scenario work?
A company can register on SAP Product Stewardship Network and invite its suppliers to the platform. Suppliers can then easily register themselves and create their company profiles. Customers can create their own questionnaires and send them to their suppliers. Suppliers then receive the questionnaire on SAP Product Stewardship Network, where they can respond to it electronically. Afterwards, customers can analyze their suppliers' scores and answers and compare the performance of the various suppliers participating in the survey.
