Engaging Suppliers in our Sustainability Journey
Global mega trends are rapidly having the potential to change the industry Circle K operate within. Industrialization and urbanization in emerging economies, sustainability regulations and policies, changing demographics and consumer preferences and the rise of new technologies all affect how Circle K shape strategies and operating model. Here you will learn how a convenience and fuel retail business choose to involve suppliers in their commitment to develop in a sustainable way.
- What role does sustainability have in the overall company strategy?
- How are suppliers involved to secure the sustainable sourcing strategy?
- In what ways are metrics set up and progress communicated with stakeholders?
The above text hold many aspects most companies struggle with today – how to stay on top of a rapid evolution, how to do that in a sustainable way and how to do it for the long run and not just ad hoc.
At Sourcing Outlook you can both listen to a presentation by Helena and Dace and join their round table sessions following their presentation.

About Sourcing Outlook
Last year EBG did a live poll during the first Sourcing Outlook held.
Considering how much of company revenue usually is invested externally – Sourcing Outlook is a great opportunity to discuss possibilities and challenges with peers within sourcing and procurement. It seems there is a lot of opportunities ahead and if EBG can inspire and help give you even just one concrete take away that will help grow You both as an individual and as a business enabler – then we are happy.
Until August 11th there is a greatly discounted price to join us – go to the conference website to learn more: sourcingoutlook.com
