Are you responsible for purchasing or working with suppliers at your business? Involved in strategy, business development, marketing, or operations? Come learn how leading companies are reducing costs and risk, achieving sustainability goals, and creating value throughout the supply chain — from sourcing to logistics.
More companies recognize that good business depends on successful supplier relationships. After all, the supply chain accounts for 50–70 percent of total expenses and greenhouse gas emissions at most manufacturing companies. The benefits of a sustainable supply chain can be significant: greater efficiencies, a boost to brand value, increased risk management, a better product, even new sources of revenue. Yet, in a recent global survey, only 52 percent of companies had adopted any sustainable sourcing practices.
Join CEOs for Sustainability as leaders from local and global businesses describe the benefits and how to get started.
