Event Details

Your company's supply chain may not only provide the greatest opportunities to reduce environmental impacts, but may also be one of the greatest sources of reputation risk!  Consider these recent report findings from global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company:

  • Most of the environmental impact associated with the consumer sector is embedded in supply chains.
  • Supply chain management can be a key strategy for mitigating environmental impact. However, while 80% of GHG emissions in most consumer-goods categories are in supply chain, only 25% of companies engage their suppliers to address these embedded emissions.
  • McKinsey also reports that the value at stake from sustainability concerns can be as a high as 70% of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. 

Join Sustainable Hamilton Burlington and Keynote Speaker Shyam Ramrekha (Product Manager, UL Environment) for an overview of opportunities, risks and best practices in sustainable procurement across a range of industries, and leading tools available for sustainable procurement professionals. Hear from a panel of  local sustainability leaders about their supply chain strategies and successes.  (Panelists to be announced shortly.)
