NIS14: Beyond Responsible Sourcing - Sustainability, Purchasing and Top Line Growth

Sustainability has become more mainstream in the last two decades and Purchasing’s contribution to this growing trend has typically centered on Responsible Sourcing. This is certainly a hugely critical task but Purchasing can do significantly more. In order to do so it must first expand its organizational capabilities beyond the traditional focus on just cost-management activities to include a new area - Innovation and new products. This expansion will enable Purchasing to become a more effective contributor to top line growth and a significantly more valuable part of the sustainable revolution. This presentation shows how Purchasing can put this paradigm shift into effect and outlines the roadmap that helps it get there.
