With the rise in importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria, ESG has made its way back into the corporate board room—and that’s a good thing. Today there’s no doubt that procurement has a more significant role than ever as more companies strive to comply with new, critical goals to not only stay competitive, but to truly differentiate their organizations in today’s environment.
Indeed, today’s business leaders must move faster to close the gap on their company's ESG goals or risk losing talent, customers, shareholders, and ultimately market share. And the key to enabling and accelerating ESG initiatives lies within the procurement function.
In this Supply Chain Management Review podcast, Group Editorial Director Michael Levans is joined by Antwaun Griffin, General Manager for Socially Responsible Purchasing at Amazon Business, in a discussion that covers the elevated role procurement now plays in ESG as well as tips to better understand how your ESG strategy can give your supply chain operation a competitive edge.
