The Global Sustainable Supply Chain Summit is to take place online over a 2 day period on the 8th and 9th of June. More than 30 global experts will participate in the event, which aims to inject sustainability into supply chain conversations and reinforce the role of supply chains.
A series of sustainability topics will be presented by influential industry voices, fostering learning, as well as inspiring and provoking conversation in sustainability at board level. This includes sustainability vs. profitability, traceability, and the importance of blockchain in the supply chain space.
Among the speakers are Alexis Bateman, Director of the Sustainable Supply Chains Lab at the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics; Thomas Udesen, Chief Procurement Officer and Co-Founder of The Sustainable Procurement Pledge at Bayer; Magali Anderson, Chief Sustainability and Innovation Officer at LafargeHolcim; Ann Tracy, Chief Sustainability Officer at Colgate-Palmolive, and Arindam Sengupta, VP and Head of Procurement Asia Pacific at Dole International.
