The pressure is on – from regulators, investors, and progressive business leaders – to prioritize ethical, sustainable, and socially conscious practices across the value chain.
A key component of this initiative is responsibly sourcing goods and services from global suppliers. And today, more companies than ever are committing to responsible sourcing. But they're facing challenges, too.
To explore these issues, we organized a webinar and invited industry leaders to offer their perspectives.
The panelists included Ruth Bromley, director of procurement enablement at Heineken, Nicoletta Centofanti, sustainability adviser to the Luxembourg Sustainable Finance Initiative (LSFI), and Anna Hakobyan, who helms global sustainability, supplier diversity, and government compliance at AstraZeneca. Genpact's chief innovation officer Gianni Giacomelli joined me in steering the discussion.
