Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) objectives are quickly rising in terms of corporate priorities. Today’s customers fully expect that organizations will act as “good citizens” in the areas of sustainability, diversity, human rights, compliance, ethics, and a lot more.
The procurement function is key to executing and accelerating ESG initiatives as their strategies orchestrate where and how a company spends. Procurement can choose suppliers that conduct their business in a manner that aligns with the organization's environmental, social, and ethical standards.
