While the focus on sustainably running business operations have been ongoing for several years now, and companies around the world have made significant progress on this front in recent years, there is still room for improvement. The pace at which sustainability initiatives are being taken up is accelerating steadily, and it has become important for companies to show greater degree of maturity when it comes to various social and environmental topics. Procurement leaders across organizations are now recognizing their responsibility to drive sustainability-oriented changes. It is in this backdrop that staying informed about the latest sustainability trends is becoming an imperative task for all procurement stakeholders.
Sustainable procurement integrates the ESG factors of corporate responsibility into procurement processes and decision-making, while also ensuring that stakeholder requirements are being met. While the objectives are usually clear – reduce carbon footprint, use ethically sourced materials, cut down energy consumption, and streamline shipping practices – what is necessary for procurement leaders is to keep a close eye on the various developments taking place in these and other areas that can be leveraged to help organizations meet their sustainability targets.
Join our webinar “Latest sustainability trends and what it means for the procurement function” where our procurement advisory experts will discuss the latest sustainability trends, how it impacts the procurement function, and what procurement leaders should do to expedite their own sustainability goals.
