EcoVadis welcomes client Beckers Group, in partnership with EBG | Network to bring you this practical webinar.

Multinational organizations are realizing the benefits of integrating sustainability/corporate social responsibility (CSR) into their procurement decisions. From mitigating risk to creating value, industry leaders are pushing their programs, tools and teams to get insights into their supply chain to create products in the most sustainable way possible that meets their stakeholder demands.

At Beckers Group, a global industrial leader in paint and coatings, they are aware of their global supply chain footprint and understand that environmental and social performance are always at stake. Starting 2014, Beckers has been expanding their CSR monitoring program to their business partners around the globe (Europe, Asia, Americas and Africa). They have found that having reliable indicators and measurable benchmarks is critical in developing a long-lasting relationship and new business opportunities with your partners.

Join us to hear from Thomas Lueder, Global Director Procurement and Supply Chain Management at Beckers Group. Hear his practical perspective on deploying a global CSR monitoring program for suppliers to support the local business needs.

What you will learn:

  • What are the drivers to expand a CSR program beyond internal operations?
  • Which indicators can be used to set goals internally? What obstacles and challenges do the company and procurement team face? What actions are they taking?
  • How to drive internal change management to integrate CSR criteria into procurement?
  • What’s the impact such initiative creates among the supply base?
