“Most companies are starting to realize that the more sustainable they become, the easier it is to go to market and have a higher value. And that is the aim at the end of the day, to last longer and add more value to the market.”
Leading procurement organizations are constantly reimagining their processes and operating models, but in today’s unpredictable and fast-changing world they are under more pressure than ever to deliver a high-level roadmap to building the procurement function of tomorrow.
In TRANSFORM – a thought-provoking new podcast series from Art of Procurement in partnership with Globality – we spotlight the agenda-setting procurement leaders and companies who are changing the game and redefining the Future of Procurement.
In the third episode in the series, host Philip Ideson talks with Vanessa Pepperell, Global COO and Strategy Procurement Vice President of Aquanima, the procurement company of Santander. Their two decades’ worth of expertise now allows them to support external clients as well.
In this interview, Vanessa explains how Aquanima is driving digital transformation in services procurement:
- How investing in ESG can help companies build brand value and ward off risk
- Why strategic partnerships require transparency, but they also require development from the buy-side organization
- The change management effort that will be required over time to account for the fact that sustainable supply chains are often more expensive
