On May 14th, EBG host a workshop focusing on sustainable procurement enabled by EcoVadis joined by Cesare Guarini, Head of Procurement Strategy Initiatives and Sustainability at Clariant. Last October, Cesare joined EBG´s autumn summit Sourcing Outlook and gave valuable insights from the past five years working intensively with sustainability at Clariant. Now a selected group have the unique opportunity to share in-depth know how with him and peers framed by the experiences shared by EcoVadis.
The workshop, held between 14:00-17:00 in the heart of Stockholm, focus on the challenges and opportunities many of you face when wanting to develop procurement sustainability programs from clauses in contracts to live ways of working across the organization.
Attending the workshop is by invitation only, feel free to send an email to lars(at)ebgnetwork.com if you are curious and want to learn more. The end goal is to gather a peer group that can draw from each others experiences and leave the workshop with actionable insights.
The workshop target senior sourcing, procurement and sustainability professionals who are responsible for and work with sustainable procurement in large Nordic organisations. We will gather a peer group that can learn from each other as well as from Clariant and EcoVadis.
