A warm welcome to Cecilia Persson, Head of Global Procurement Indirect & Enabling Functions at AstraZeneca joining CPO Outlook 2022. Cecilia invite you to join her Theme Discussions, round table discussions on October 12th. Her discussions will focus on sustainability from a procurement perspective – much needed experience exchange!
On October 12th and 13th you who join us in Stockholm can choose from a series of small group round table discussions. All focusing on different aspects important for you working in procurement. Finally we are back with that summit where you walk away with a sense of community.
Registration is open and there will be limited seats.
Below what Cecilia will bring up for discussion.
How can procurement develop sustainability collaboration with the business and suppliers?
Almost all companies have high set sustainability targets today. Carbon footprints, science based targets as examples. Scope 3 relate to everything procurement and supply chain do together with suppliers. But procurement is just one part – the business who request the supplies and services and suppliers who are the obvious opposite partner all need to agree, comply and engage in targets set. Easier said than done!
During this session you will share experiences and concrete ways of working engaging the business and suppliers in corporate sustainability work.
- How are you making sure the business is engaged in the targets set and incorporated in contracts?
- In what ways are you engaging with suppliers to follow up on targets set?
- How do you help suppliers comply with targets and be able to share data?
- How much may it cost to ensure set targets given there is not a unified way of sharing data?
Moderator: Cecilia Persson, Head of Global Procurement Indirect & Enabling Functions, AstraZeneca
