Smarter sustainability and intelligent procurement on the agenda
Ecosurety is launching strategic working groups tackling procurement and sustainability, with one of the first events slated for 23 September in Leicester and plans for national coverage by the end of the year.
The working groups have been developed to confront key challenges and strategic opportunities for procurement professionals, and will initially bring together professionals active in the food and drink sector, but with plans to extend into other industries.
Steve Clark, chair of ecosurety, says this kind of facilitated group learning gives those involved the chance to move faster and drive change to stay ahead of the curve – and ahead of the regulators.
“Peer learning is a fantastic way to stay informed and seize opportunities. We’ll be reviewing the latest innovations, analysing trends and patterns in the sector, and even exploring the potential to share the load on some opportunities to cut overheads."
“We are convinced this is a great way for buying professionals and sustainability managers to learn from others and even to show their leadership teams the way ahead.”
The working groups meet for half a day every two months, with a detailed itinerary for each session agreed with participants in advance, backed by ongoing support via a dedicated member website.
