Procurement and sustainability teams alike are groping for guidance on how they can rebuild more resilient supply chains in the wake of a calamitous year. This presents an opportune time to review, compare, and improve strategies and practices.

The 2021 Sustainable Procurement Barometer, developed in partnership with the Stanford Value Chain Innovation initiative, surveyed procurement and sustainable supply leaders (and which was augmented by a concurrent supplier survey) to bring insights on the state of sustainable procurement practices.

Speakers: Barchi (Becky) Gillai, Associate Director of the Value Chain Innovation Initiative at Stanford Graduate School of Business, will speak, along with introduction from David McClintock, Marketing Director at EcoVadis
