Sustain 2018 will gather the community of sustainability and procurement professionals who see the urgency and share the vision that “Now Is the Time” to take action and seize the advantages of a sustainable supply chain. Sustainable procurement is not just a nice-to-have but an integral function responsible for protecting and improving brand reputation, driving revenue and mitigating business risk. This is the moment companies need to act and drive sustainable practices through the supply chain not just to avoid being left behind, but to seize the opportunities to transform their business.
