Resilience and Sustainable Procurement: Leveraging supply chain data to identify, avoid and mitigate risk.
A few months back, lowering C02 emissions, improving CSR strategies and sustainable business development had a central role in most companies' supply chain and procurement organisations. Then came COVID-19.
Have companies left their previous, then so important, C02, CSR and sustainability strategies? What has the impact been to date? Let’s find out and join Anna Bjarkerud, Founder and Managing Director at EBG Network and Peter Rau, Operations Manager at EcoVadis.
Assessing and mitigating risks in the supply chain is a critical value lever of sustainable procurement. The COVID-19 crisis has put everyone’s resilience to the test and exemplifies this interplay. This session explores:
- What risk and sustainability data and indicators are important? Many of which were exposed in this crisis!
- How are these indicators used in procurement and throughout the organization to mitigate risk?
- How can you quickly assess and evaluate your supplier network given the need for more/fewer, more or less regional/local/global supplies and more flexible supply options?
As we peer into the future we’ll explore what tools, data, and strategies we’ll need to prepare for exiting the crisis into a New Normal.
