Topics

#Procurement, #Supply Chain


Despite the range of activities that companies have undertaken in recent years to improve the sustainability of their supply chains, the focus continues to be on mitigating risks versus creating new opportunities.

Procurement professionals today need more tools, methods, and inspiration to integrate sustainability into the procurement process across product categories. This is where the Center for Sustainable Procurement (CSP) can play a role. With the support of Hilton Worldwide, BSR created the CSP to help buyers understand the value of sustainability to procurement and build their capabilities to make sustainable procurement decisions.

Please join us for a one-hour webinar to learn more about the CSP and hear insights from experts on how sustainability can be incorporated into the procurement process. Attendees also will learn about how they can get involved with the CSP and receive an update about the official re-launch in November at the BSR Conference 2014. The discussion is intended for a general audience.

Speakers

  • Max Verstraete, Vice President, Hilton Worldwide
  • David Lawrence, Chairman, AIM-Progress
  • Tara Norton, Former Managing Director, BSR
