Latest research from Supply Management Insider, with support from Ecovadis, found that protecting the environment, human rights and livelihoods of workers is exceptionally important to the majority of procurement professionals.
However, many work for organisations that, despite current or anticipated regulations that require such due diligence, have under-developed sustainable procurement programmes that are currently ill-equipped to achieve these ambitions. Thus, many procurement heads and their teams may be missing out on a potential "gold mine" of motivation and engagement - as well as all the benefits of a successful SP programme.
This whitepaper presents, analyses and interprets the results of that research and recommends practical steps organisations can take to ensure they have all the success factors in place.
