CEOs for sustainability
Event Description

More companies recognize that working with suppliers to create a sustainable supply chain is a business imperative, critical to the organization’s success. After all, the supply chain accounts for 50–70 percent of total expenses and greenhouse gas emissions for most manufacturing companies, as well as key risk vulnerabilities. The benefits of a sustainable supply chain can be significant: reduced costs, better risk management, new sources of revenue, and a boost to brand value. Yet, in a recent global survey, only 52 percent of companies had adopted any sustainable sourcing practices.

Join CEOs for Sustainability as leaders from local businesses describe the benefits and how to get started.
