How have Sustainable Procurement Improvement & Impact evolved?

New forces like net-zero carbon commitments, new regulations, consumer expectations, digital transformation imperative and investor and finance ESG market demands, are causing leaders to raise the ambition of their sustainable procurement programs beyond resilience to driving measurable “improvement and Impact”. 

In this session, we’ll explore:

Trends and forces including;

  • The Norwegian Supply Chain Transparency Act, The EU proposal on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence
  • The convergence of ESG reporting frameworks and the radical shift in Climate action expectations and strategy, together with the growth in greenwashing scrutiny/accusations

Practical experiences including;

  • How can leading procurement teams respond to set Impact and Improvement as their new “North Star” for their programs?
  • What tools/ indicators – and engagement strategies are they using to not just monitor, but engage suppliers in an improvement journey for environmental, carbon, social and ethical performance?
