Sustainable procurement is undoubtedly rising as a key driver of supply chain sustainability. Buyers have a strategic positioning as they face suppliers and are positioned quite upstream in the value chain. Collaboration is key with both internal and external stakeholders.

But the topic is so broad, time- and effort-consuming, under increasing and accelerating regulation pressure that buyers barely know where to start and how to pitch the business case.

In this series of interactive events in partnership with SAP Ariba, you will learn about practical cases from our experts and panelists from various industries and backgrounds and ultimately be armed to initiate or pursue the change of mindset in your purchasing organization. Following our introductory seminar on 6 April 2022, we would now like to invite you to our industry-specific workshops that will address the challenges your company and colleagues are facing.

On-Site Follow-Up Event: “Sustainability beyond regulation” on September 20, 2022 in Hallbergmoos near Munich
