Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply Panel Discussion: Supply Chain Resilience & Sustainability in Procurement

Procurement professionals the world over have gained a more prominent position in organisations, largely due to the attention they drew during the pandemic. And while the disruptions highlighted an urgent need to increase resilience in supply chains, they also forced many organisations to pause or postpone their efforts in ethical and sustainable practices.

Now, as the profession returns its focus to these three key activities, many are left asking – how do you achieve best practice in resilience, ethics and sustainability?
