Engaging suppliers in sustainability
Start Date:09 Nov 10 End Date:10 Nov 10
The question is no longer "why create a sustainable supply chain?", it's "how do we get our suppliers to help us create one?"
Over the past two years, ownership of the sustainable supply chain agenda has moved from the CR team to the procurement team. At the same time, procurement professionals are becoming more aware of the potential savings the sustainability agenda can drive.
Everyone is coming on board – the days of raising awareness are long gone. The next big question is how do you properly engage suppliers in your sustainability agenda and, crucially, what are the business processes involved?
It's time for practical action and this conference will get right down to the nitty gritty. Leading practitioners will show you where to focus your efforts. You'll leave with the best examples on everything from what incentives to put in place to what to say to suppliers.
