ABOUT SUSTAIN

EcoVadis "SustaIn" is the annual event dedicated to supply chain sustainability, bringing 400+ sustainability and procurement professionals together to highlight innovative practices, share experiences and common challenges, discuss latest regulations and emerging technologies.

As 2017 marks EcoVadis' 10th anniversary, this year's edition of "SustaIn" will be a celebration of our customers.

When EcoVadis started in 2007, our customers were pioneers: Sustainable procurement was an esoteric niche. Adopting EcoVadis made them very “early adopters”. Fast forward 9 years, and you find sustainable procurement is among the top priorities for over 93% of Chief Procurement Officers.

But the scenario is quickly evolving. With major CSR issues affecting supply chains and new regulations coming into force, Sustainable Procurement leaders need to maintain the original "pioneer" spirit to maintain a straight course towards building sustainable, resilient supply chains.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Paris, on May 9-10, to discuss this and many more topics.
