Sustainability leaders on social procurement, collaboration and events

Creating environmental and social sustainability across your supply chains has never been more important. For many organisations, prioritising sustainability is nothing new. As others across the public and private sector make urgent changes to meet the demands of legislation and the expectations of their workforce and market, those who have been leading on sustainability find themselves in a position to share knowledge and collaborate to create a much-needed inclusive and sustainable economy.


Events like the Social Procurement Festival offer a chance for people across supply chains and with varying degrees of experience to connect, share best-practice and work together towards a more sustainable future. We asked sustainability leaders who will be speaking at the festival about the need to adopt social procurement, the benefits of collaboration and the importance of social procurement events.
