Regulators demand it. Sustainable procurement is a must for every business. With enormous potential impact on a global scale, sustainable procurement is essential for futureproofing your business – everyone can make a difference. Be a changemaker and learn how to influence your stakeholders – watch the Chicago Big Ideas Summit now! Take the lead. Procurious’ 2021 survey with iValua of more than 470 professionals around the globe, showed procurement and supply chain leaders with advanced programs are more than twice as likely to report an increase in sales alongside improved product and service quality.
