Virtual B2B Sustainability Forum 2020

October 21-22, 2020 | Virtual

Connect and collaborate with supply chain leaders and professionals on how to improve your sustainability performance to become a more resilient organization


The fast-evolving role of sustainable practices across a turbulent, global economic and political landscape over the last 20 years has shown us multiple examples of sustainability risks in day-to-day practices, and these problems are rising. Environmental, human rights or ethical disasters can happen in any industry, anywhere, including developed countries.

As a result, demands for sustainable business practices continues to grow at unprecedented speed. Now, more than ever, stakeholders will question your sustainability practices and your ability to operate during unexpected scenarios, like the current COVID-19 crisis.

Simply put, having the lowest prices, the highest quality services and products, and the shortest delivery times are not enough to operate and retain or gain business with customers and prospects.

Are you ready to rebound and reignite business smarter and better than before?
