COVID-19 has forced businesses and supply chains to adapt fast to survive but, what is the role of sustainability in this new normal?

In our  webinar we explored what the new normal means for sustainable procurement and what the challenges and opportunities are for procurement professionals.

Shaun McCarthy OBE, Chair of the Supply Chain Sustainability School and our guest speaker pointed out that, “sustainability took a back seat in previous crises; however, it is not the role it has taken in these unprecedented times. Governments, businesses and society are taking it very seriously. Our recovery is going to have sustainability at its heart for the first time ever”.

In addition, we examined the 5 best practices when building a more sustainable supply chain, the latest trends in carbon footprint and we took a practical view for buyers across different industries.
