Top 6 Reasons to Attend Sustain 2018

March 16, 2018 Anna Kapica-Harward


There is no question about it — it is hard to take time away from work. So any event you attend has to be really worthwhile to justify a day or two out of the office. This is exactly what Sustain is – we have created the conference with you in mind and here are top six reasons why it is worth your time to attend:


1.  Networking

With over 400 procurement and sustainability directors and executives from large multinationals in the EcoVadis network you will make amazing connections. Think Coca-Cola, Nestle, Heineken, Ferrero, LVMH, Nokia, L’Oreal, Solvay, Unilever, Mars, Bayer, Johnson & Johnson and more.

2. Inspiration

When it comes to innovation and shaping the future of sustainable supply chains, this is the place. And you will hear first-hand from some truly inspirational people including two keynote speakers: Andre Borschberg, Solar Impulse co-founder and pilot, and Isabelle Autissier, sailor and WWF France president.

3. Content

With more than 20 sessions dedicated to sustainability and sustainable procurement you will get plenty of practical takeaways you can bring back to the office. We will feature top speakers from Amcor, Toyota Material Handling, Atos, the United Nations Global Compact and more.

4. Reaching Beyond

Apart from sustainability, supply chain and procurement experts the event will bring professionals from risk, compliance, quality, finance and communications. So you can reach beyond your closest community, invite key colleagues from related areas, help them feel involved and gain alignment on your path forward.


Be part of a great evening to celebrate sustainability excellence and innovation. This is also when we recognize those who drive sustainable procurement around the globe and when we present Sustainability Leadership Awards so you will be the first one to find out the winners. 

6. Being in the Know

With fresh insights from major international organizations including the Global Reporting Initiative and the United Nations Global Compact you will keep abreast of the latest developments and regulations in sustainability.


The event is less than a month away. Be sure you book your seat in time and if you are an EcoVadis customer contact your Client Success Manager – you may still be able to get a discount.
