In light of the climate, energy, and cost of living crises, it is vital that businesses unpick their supply chain and re-evaluate how they assess sustainability, social value, and cost effectiveness. So, we want to bring together the leaders of people and planet focussed procurement to share their knowledge and enable other organisations to take similar action.

  • Explore how social value and sustainability can be incorporated into procurement policies to achieve wider business goals.
  • Be given real-world examples of people and planet focussed procurement.
  • Feel empowered to adopt sustainable procurement practises that make sense for your organisation.
