How to Start & Accelerate a Sustainable Procurement Program & Drive Top Line Value

Is your procurement organisation equipped to deliver value to the top line through executing a sustainability strategy? For many businesses, the motivation to act sustainably is driven by the need to avoid regulatory risk and negative press, but that approach neglects the opportunity to create value up and down the value chain. Today the message has to be: adapt or fall behind.

As a procurement team, sustainability has to be more than an act of policing suppliers, it needs to be focused on reducing waste, collaborating on solutions to business problems and rethinking who businesses buy from and how they assess them. Doing that requires precision, process and passion: this webinar looks at those traits and what strategies and tools procurement has at its disposal to drive change and, crucially, demonstrate tangible value to the business.

Key takeaways:

  • Real examples of how organisations have developed a sustainable procurement strategy and where they’ve seen value
  • Key lessons in establishing a more mature framework: moving from police to value partners
  • A focus on tracing the impact and measuring success of sustainable procurement
