Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues increasingly feature on chief procurement officers’ radar. The role of procurement is no longer limited to securing materials and services at competitive cost, managing risks, or securing supplier resources for innovation. It is now a function that helps the business optimize its supply chain to create and deliver greatest value. But, how does a company encourage its suppliers to advance from measuring their sustainability activities to focusing on the actual environmental and social outcomes?

Join us as we discuss and present the findings from our latest research on Sustainable Procurement – Lessons from Leading Companies. Hear from two leading companies that have successfully demonstrated and achieved impact along their supply chain.

Key Learnings :

      • Case for sustainable supply chain
      • Sustainable supply chain: current state of affairs
      • What impact is and why it is important
      • Sustainable procurement framework: self-assessment tool
      • Lessons from leading companies
