“Procurement is in the eye of a storm.” This is how the Theme Discussions led by EcoVadis at Sourcing Outlook 2020 begin. EcoVadis are joining Sourcing Outlook on October 8th, inviting You to discuss measurable value and ROI in sustainable supply chains.
The year 2020 has been a challenge for most companies. Either by seeing a demand cut short or a demand sky rocketing. The supply chain in either case being in the heart of most businesses. How transparent is your supply chain? Does it matter?
EBG | Network welcome EcoVadis and the great insights they can share with you on October 8th (and beyond!). The pandemic has enabled EBG to bring together competence either on-site and online – or completely online. All being present online also make sure you can continue to ask questions and stay in contact which is a NEW feature. The glass is always half full at EBG.

Measurable Value and ROI in a High-Performance Sustainable Supply Chain
Procurement is in the eye of a storm. Pressures are mounting from investors, customers, and employees, for companies – and their supply chains – to embrace “stakeholder capitalism” and serve a social purpose. In the meantime, the COVID-19 crisis has exposed huge vulnerabilities in global supply chains, highlighting the value of resilience. Procurement must figure out how to select suppliers that meet expectations, while creating tangible, measurable business value.
Sustainable procurement creates not only resilience and risk mitigation benefits, but also – with the right indicators and tools to measure and drive supplier performance – delivers a broad range of monetizable value.
By identifying the high performing suppliers, you can realize value from:
- Building resilience
- Boosting sales revenue
- Differentiating products
- Accessing new categories or market segments
- Driving innovation
This workshop will share and discuss:
- The Seven pillars of Sustainable Procurement Value that provide measurable return on investment
- Case examples of experienced practitioners
- Experiences in the group during 2020 and ahead
