Webinar Recording: Responsible Supply Chain

In this event, we discussed how the EU sustainability regulations will affect supply chain management and how an organization, whether it is big or small, can prioritize its sustainability efforts.

As procurement and sustainability teams alike are reeling from over a year of ‘stop & restart’ pandemic, the practice of Sustainable Procurement has endured and expanded as a key strategy for rebuilding better and more resilient supply chains. In this session, we will offer insights and practitioner perspectives on how leaders are finding new tools for sustainable procurement.

Join the session with participation of EcoVadis gathering competencies and experiences in sustainability. Sustainability is and has for a long time been high on the agenda for most organizations. Regulations including Taxonomy, are driving this change forward.

We discussed;

  • What measures are procurement functions taking to visualize sustainability efforts?
  • How can procurement integrate sustainability KPIs/metrics/dashboards into operations?
  • In what ways are corporates collaborating with suppliers to ensure clauses are complied with?

New taxonomy regulation - for the clearer supply chain reporting

  • Regulation is about the change - What new will taxonomy and other new directives bring?
  • Lawmakers and investors will have more expectations towards sustainability
  • Sustainability is not just a one-man band - How can an organization control the whole life-cycle?
    • Are your components responsible? What are the ways of supply chain examination for smaller companies?
    • Sustainable supply chain reporting
