Planet Price was founded by Andy Hill as a “for influence” business with a mission to help large organisations reduce the impact of their supply chains on People and the Planet. In a previous life, Andy was co-founder and CEO of Oniqua – a global supply chain analytics business which was ultimately acquired by IBM Watson in 2018.
Oniqua’s customers were massive asset-intensive companies in the mining, oil & gas and energy sectors who delivered valuable resources to society – but whose operations left a significant environmental and social footprint.
After retiring from Oniqua, Andy conducted research in the field of Sustainability Spend Analysis for his Masters dissertation at the Cambridge Institute of Sustainability Leadership. A key finding from this research was the need for a single metric that would help business people quantify sustainability dimensions in monetary terms – from this realisation the concept of Planet Price was born.
