THE SUSTAINABILITY IMPERATIVE

Procurement managers are faced with an intricate task in today’s global business environment, balancing cost efficiency with sustainability.  

Compliance with regulations, managing supplier-related risks, ensuring resource sustainability, and assessing environmental impact are key factors. This dynamic scenario requires procurement to be redefined with sustainability at its core, presenting unique challenges such as understanding supplier-related ESG risks, ensuring data accuracy, adapting to changing sustainability regulations, and driving a shift towards sustainable procurement practices.

STRATEGIC ESG

Procurement managers can implement a variety of strategies to integrate sustainability into their procurement processes.  

These include sustainable sourcing, supplier engagement on sustainability, ESG integration into procurement decision-making, implementing sustainable supply chain management practices, and using data-driven insights for effective supplier management. Cultivating a culture of sustainability within the procurement function and promoting sustainable leadership are also key components of the approach.

Bernard Jacobs

DIGITAL DIRECTOR

After 14 years in the marine water sector Bernard joined GCX in 2013 and initially focused on water sustainability at corporate level. It was this process that highlighted that “most” corporates, with all good intentions, do not have the know-how, ability or understanding of how to go about gathering, managing and reporting responsible data.

During his tenure at GCX, Bernard combined his formal accounting training, his IT skills and worked together with the highly skilled technical team at GCX and its associates to develop the GCX GCX Data Analytics and Sustainability Hub (DASH-).
