Sustainability: what Corporations want and how to get started

Corporations demand their partners to develop new sustainable products and services to improve the sustainability of the supply chain. The panel will discuss procurement requirements, resources available to suppliers and share insights from two suppliers’ real-life experiences. 

Corporate leaders are confronting a growing list of environmental and social issues that pose serious risks and opportunities for their businesses. They are looking to their suppliers to contribute to the value chain and help them meet their public commitments. Suppliers need the skills, knowledge, and tools to build an organization that has sustainable and innovative solutions to challenges such as climate change and societal inequities. Learn about the trends driving this new business imperative and how to incorporate the important environmental, social and governance (ESG) dimensions of sustainable business practice.

Objectives

  • What is Sustainability and Why it is Important, and Why now
  • Growing Supplier Expectations by the Corporates
  • Sharing best practice how suppliers start and enhance their sustainability journey
