Leaders in purchasing and supply chain across every industry are seeking innovative ways to optimise value creation beyond cost savings and ‘tick-the-box’ exercises. With increased stakeholder demands, public scrutiny and regulations around sustainability - such as the UK Modern Slavery Act, the UK Bribery Act – the pressure is on procurement. Knowing more about the sustainability performance of suppliers can not only protect your sourcing activities but also reveal best practice and untapped opportunity.
On October 1st, join procurement professionals, industry thought leaders, and EcoVadis executives to discuss how to proactively (and efficiently) leverage sustainable procurement to drive a resilient supply chain. Come and share your views on the goals, challenges and experiences in sustainable procurement.
