Procurement transformation is very often the name of the game in the pages of CPOstrategy, but what happens when that transformation acts as more of an enabler towards greater sustainability in the supply chain?
What does sustainability really mean to an organisation and how can procurement accelerate the conversation? Well, Renee Leong, CPO of Engie NA. says it’s a question of how we actually measure the value of procurement that’s important before looking at how it can help a company significantly improve its impact on the environment around it. We caught up with Renee as she discussed procurement and the company’s ongoing move away from fossil fuels.
“We have the power to actually influence how the product is being made and how the services are being offered to us so we can really help drive positive change to society,” she says.
We also caught up with Mahmoud Al Alawi, HCT Director of Procurement & Contracts, two years after launching a significant procurement transformation to see how the organisation continues to take procurement to new heights even during the challenging COVID19 pandemic.
And finally, we speak with Douglas Klimak, CPO of Banco Bradesco, as he walks us through a procurement journey that will see an institute of Brazillian banking define a new age of procurement maturity.
