Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is more relevant than ever. Consumers, employees, investors, public authorities, the entire ecosystem wants to see companies act in favour of sustainable development.
Integrating ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria into its strategy is now an absolute priority for all companies seeking sustainable growth.
The procurement function, through its positioning with suppliers and its ability to connect the various stakeholders, has all the cards in its hand to lead the transition towards a more sustainable company.
How can the procurement function become a major contributor to sustainable development and strengthen its position in the management team?
To answer this question, we had the pleasure of welcoming three CPOs for a debate moderated by journalist Stéphane Soumier, President of B SMART.
Our Partner, Xavier Nouguès, Global Head of the Value Sourcing Practice, contributed to the debate by reviewing the main findings of our global survey on Sustainable Procurement.
