A practical 2 day conference on how to engage suppliers on your Social, Environmental, and other Sustainability priorities

  • Achieve better supplier engagement through improved internal alignment with cross-department and function teams
  • Enhance procurement metrics by mapping sustainability criteria against existing purchasing priorities
  • Galvanize how supply chain teams think about where to source and ways to incentivize suppliers
  • Overcome challenges associated with identifying suitable KPIs for supplier questionnaires and scorecards
  • Expert tips on securing supplier buy-in even when you are not their biggest customer
  • Powerful techniques to increase transparency and improve traceability of sourcing

 

The question is no longer: WHY create a sustainable supply chain?
You need to ask yourself: HOW do we get our suppliers to help us create one?


Ensure your suppliers co-operate and commit – instead of just paying lip service

At this top-level event, leading practitioners will take you step-by-step from Preparation to Implementation. Hear about where to focus your efforts, what reward structure to put in place, how to develop better scorecards and questionnaires, and much more.

Equip your procurement team with crucial business tools and processes

Procurement teams used to base their decisions primarily on price, quality and time. So what about the practical and operational challenges that emerge when social and environmental priorities are factored in? The Conference will spell out how to integrate sustainability to meet overall purchasing targets, what incentives to put in place and much more besides.

For an in-depth insight about our workshops, plenary sessions and discussion have a look at the agenda.

The How to Drive Supplier Social & Environmental Conference will not waste your time talking about what carbon footprint is or discussing theories of what a sustainable supply chain means.

No fluff, no pitches, just the concrete HOW-TOs

As always, we have the best speakers, whose sustainability and procurement backgrounds which match the practical emphasis of this event. This is your chance to pick the brains of senior, hands-on executives from corporate sustainability leaders including The Walt Disney Company, Bombardier Aerospace, Alcatel-Lucent, Kraft Foods, Pacific Gas & Electricity, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, MeadWestvaco, Pepsico, IBM, Office Depot, Kimberly-Clark and others..

To help you benchmark from leading US and global companies, we have also recruited one of the most respected European leader in the field: Marks & Spencer. For this one session only, we will stage a live video presentation where their company’s Head of Sustainable Business will share his wisdom and experience. Extra Q&A time has
been scheduled at the end of this session to allow you to GET YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED.

Our events have a proven track record, with 900+ executives attending our previous supply chain conferences – a clear measure of how business-critical they are. This event will sell out: Reserve your ticket immediately to avoid ending up on the waiting list.

To get maximum value from this event, come with your sustainability / procurement colleagues to ensure a unified and holistic approach across both business functions.

I look forward to seeing you in New York on 25 – 26 October 2011. To reserve your spot or get more information on the Conference Agenda, rates and lodging, email cora.ng@ethicalcorp.com or call 1 800 814 3459 today.
