Webinar | How Procurement can unlock our sustainable future

Rightly or wrongly, Procurement has gained a reputation for cost-cutting. So, how does it achieve improvements in value-based purchasing decisions, and how does the C-suite engage and empower the workplace millennials who are so keen to change the agenda?

In our latest webinar, the panel comprising Graham Crawshaw from CASME, Thomas Udesen from Bayer, and Bertrand Conquerot from Henkel, hosted by Omer Abdullah from The Smart Cube, discussed how procurement professionals can be an agent of change within their own organisations, no matter their seniority, to unlock a sustainable future through:

  1. Equality and diversity – how Procurement can play a role in minimising inequality through supplier diversity and community impact; ultimately to help level the playing field for all
  2. Creating a value-based currency that is no longer just about price, and what this means for Procurement trying to improve their organisation’s sustainability record
  3. Practical steps towards change that any procurement professional can apply.
