“We can look at sustainability in two ways. There is what procurement can do to support the company’s sustainability agenda, and there is what can sustainability do to help procurement become more visible.”
As digital transformation progresses, corporate leadership teams are increasing their focus on the quality and availability of data. Spend analysis is just one internal data resource in a sea of data ecosystems, but it has the potential to serve as the foundational connection point for all procurement analytics.
For this special series, Art of Procurement partnered with Sievo and Buyers Meeting Point to take a deep dive into procurement data ecosystems. We will explore how procurement leaders can meet their analytical requirements while also exploiting the full cross-functional value of data – data that enables corporate growth and competitive advantage.
In this episode, Kelly Barner and Pierre-Francois Thaler, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of EcoVadis, discuss the different scopes, organizational models, and ways of tracking, certifying, and reporting on investments in sustainability.
- The current state of sustainability initiatives and what large enterprises can do to scale their impact
- How procurement can use metrics and scorecards to ensure that investments in sustainability are recognized from the end consumer to the boardroom
- Whether risk mitigation is a natural outcome of sustainability programs and how technology can carry these efforts successfully forward into the future
