| None

Workshop, 9 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

Sustainability is rapidly shifting from a “nice to have” to a core competency influencing branding, competitive position, and supply chain resiliency. Businesses can no longer get by with generic statements or nebulous objectives, procurement and supply chain functions are being tasked with fundamentally challenging and taking practical actions across all areas of operations and supply chain. But defining what sustainability means in real terms and translating this into measurable actions and improvements is easier said than done. 

In the workshop we will share the industry best practice / case studies / latest thought leadership and seek productive discussion / inputs on the following:

  • The varying definitions of sustainability and how these align to the priorities of your business
  • Cascading business sustainability objectives into procurement / category KPIs
  • Demand-side sustainability management in procurement and supply chain
  • Supply-side sustainability management in procurement and supply chain
