That most if not all companies have placed sustainability at the top of a list of measurable strategies is clear. It is also clear that it is not as easy as presenting a code of conduct nor spreading that code of conduct. Enabling sustainability goals that probably affect decisions many make in an organization is also increasingly being recognized. Procurement sit in the heart of enabling these corporate wide goals. What is increasingly interesting is also the focus finance and process owners have on sustainability. But perhaps not surprising – if you truly want to go beyond code of conduct – sustainability is a cross function task to achieve.
GEP enabled Theme Discussions during Source 2 Pay Summit 2021
On May 6th you who join Source 2 Pay Summit can choose to join the sessions hosted by GEP. They will focus their online, pre-chosen, limited seats round table discussions on how to achieve value within sustainable procurement. Imagine what you can draw from what the peer group has to share too. Ask your questions, compare and give from your experiences, the outcome of that discussion can be great. Mark Philipp Oberhoff, Senior Director at GEP will be the host of these Theme Discussions.
How do you create real value within Sustainable Procurement?
Procurement — a major part of any organization’s budget — is being integrated with sustainability, which involves making purchase decisions that both meet a company’s need for goods and services, and minimize the environmental impact.

About Source 2 Pay Summit
The other day EBG spoke to a senior manager in a large organization working within finance. She said that earlier she could reach out to her network and get help gathering peers to exchange experiences. For the past year she had hardly even spoken to someone outside her own company. And we know very few have met even within the own company.
Is that a good or bad thing or indifferent? EBG strongly believe in learning across functions and in-between organizations. EBG know there are many large transformation projects taking place or about to take place. How do you avoid mistakes and make use of experiences already gone though if you don’t meet with anyone else?
Source 2 Pay Summit offer informal yet to the point round table discussions. You create your own day based on what You find important to learn more about and discuss.
