In recent years the transparency of company supply chain has become increasingly important. The Responsible Sourcing Council will discuss and try to find solutions to multi-tier supply chain transparency, supply chain risk management, sustainability strategy alignment and other challenges facing responsible sourcing professionals. Failing to address these issues could have cost, reputation and growth consequences for companies in the future.Whilst sector specific gatherings on Responsible sourcing exist for some time, this council offers uniquely a wide spectrum of participants from different industry sectors. The confidential dialogue of these diverse peers combines broader perspective with insights from companies facing the same challenges in different circumstances opening up new and trustworthy solutions.
Potential Topics include:
- Development of Responsible Procurement
- Aligning Strategy with Deployment
- Risk management
- Supplier Relationship Management
- External Developments
- Information management
Who should join?
This Council is for the people who have ultimate accountability for Responsible Sourcing in their organisation e.g. Responsible Supply Chain / Procurement VPs, Corporate Sustainability Coordinators, Supplier Development Director etc
