How Would We Recognize “Sustainable Procurement” If We Saw It?
This session will explore the intersection of public and private companies, as well as government, in supply chain management and procurement. The panel will address why sustainability criteria are becoming increasingly important in the procurement decision-making process. The session will also discuss the challenges that need to be overcome to give appropriate weighting to supplier companies that are striving to adopt sustainability practices, looking for the best ways to measure and manage sustainability value and risk drivers. Expect to find specific solutions and incentives that can be utilized to move the needle toward a more systematic sustainable procurement protocol.
