If procurement is going to take control of CSR, it has to move from reactive, fire-fighting measures to driving value and countering risk across the organisation. Leadership in environmental and social issues in the supply chain means changing the way your business selects and manages suppliers and making sure that internal customers aren’t just ticking a box but have embedded the CSR strategy into how they secure supply.
The panel will look at the tools, processes and techniques to make a leap from green washing to driving green value.
This discussion will feature:
- The main challenges for organisations looking to be truly pro-active and leading in the CSR standards in their supply chains?
- Ways to adapt supplier management to more carefully understand performance and risk deep in the supply base?
- Tactics to overcome resistance internally and get the people pressing the buttons to have the information they need to make CSR-smart decisions
