EcoVadis is pleased to be a Gold Sponsor at the annual SPLC Summit
Here are just a few reasons to join us at the North American Sustainable Procurement event of the year!
Panel on Day 1: LEVERAGING SUPPLIER SUSTAINABILITY RATINGS IN PUBLIC SECTOR & PRIVATE SECTOR PURCHASING
MAY 21, 2019, 11:35 AM
SPLC members have identified third-party supplier sustainability rating tools as an important way to evaluate supplier sustainability across a large supply base, to reduce supplier survey fatigue, and to motivate meaningful supplier performance improvement. In this session, participants will hear from procurement organizations in the private and public sectors that are leveraging enterprise-level supplier sustainability ratings.
Interactive learning session Day 2: May 22, 11:25 AM. “Sustainable Purchasing 201: Making The Case For Investing In Your SP Program” .
To get your company to invest staff time and other resources in your sustainable purchasing program requires making a business case to leaders in your organization. The blueprint for building that business case is now available thanks to research conducted by the SPLC. We will present key learnings and practitioner case examples from that research. Then, to highlight and drive home unifying themes regarding challenges and winning strategies, we will utilize gamification to reinforce lessons learned — by playing “Leadership Approval – the GAME“, newly created for the SPLC summit.
Round-table session Day 2 (in the Innovation Accelerator mid-day on May 22)
“Anti-Corruption in Supply Chains: New Benchmark Study Reveals Gaps & Best Practices”

Founded in 2013, the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council convenes buyers, suppliers, and public interest advocates to develop programs that simplify and standardize sustainable purchasing efforts by large organizations. The Council has quickly attracted, from a wide variety of sectors and regions, more than 180 members with over $200 billion in collective purchasing power. In 2016, SPLC released Guidance for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing v2.0, which has been called the “most comprehensive literature to date” on sustainable purchasing. More than one hundred organizations are now using SPLC’s Guidance, resources, and online community of practice to create strategic sustainable purchasing programs, or enhance existing ones.
