This empirical paper represents a research regarding sustainability that was investigated in the form of a master thesis. Since nowadays it is no longer enough to only focus on financial achievements, companies and their business units need to make a positive contribution to their stakeholders, society and the environment (KPMG International, 2020, p. 1). Corporate procurement in particular, has a significant role with regard to sustainability. Due to a cooperation of the CBS International Business School and a European energy company, there was a concrete research demand regarding sustainable procurement. In the following, suggestions of (further) integrations of sustainability practices for the procurement department of the concrete company case and its strategic suppliers have been developed. Sustainable procurement controlling processes are particularly in the spotlight of the research.
