We had an incredible day and a successful first ever Virtual Sustain! Over 1600 attendees connected together to enjoy captivating plenaries from CEOs, CPOs and thought leader experts, as well as rich breakout sessions featuring procurement and sustainability professionals from the likes of HSBC, Mars and Thermo Fisher.

Notable highlights of the day include an informative presentation by Dr. Gabrielle Walker on the realities and impact of current climate change and compelling insights into sustainable procurement at L’Oréal and Alcoa in our CPO panel.

The afternoon featured a range of breakout sessions covering a host of procurement and sustainability topics from Making Sustainability a Contributor to Procurement Performance to The Role of Sustainability/ESG Ratings in Financial Solutions.

We also encourage you to share with colleagues who may have missed the event!
