The past several months have been nothing short of transformational for sustainability and procurement. The movement toward stakeholder capitalism was seized as the COVID pandemic brought supply chain resilience into the spotlight and then thrust into the fire of climate calamity. Will 2021 be a year of transformation and regeneration?

One thing is for sure: Sustain changed forever when we saw 1,600 virtual attendees interacting with over 50 experts and leaders after the last event went virtual. Sustain 2021 will amplify this year’s virtual event with a state-of-the-art digital engagement experience.

This conference is a must-attend event for anyone at the intersection of sustainability and procurement, sourcing, and supply chain. Don’t miss this once per year opportunity to engage in new insights, innovative solutions and partnerships, and more ways to connect with peers and experts to inspire and drive your programs forward.


Insightful, practical, inspirational. Sustain speakers bring you new knowledge in a collaborative environment.

Why not share your story with the supply chain world? Over 2000 attendees are waiting to hear from you. What do you have to say? Pitch your story to challenge the status quo and disrupt business as usual.
