Sustainability as a business strategy is taking center stage and 60%—80% of the impact takes place through sourcing and supply chain, We, at Global Sourcing Council, are on the front line of educating, advocating and inspiring global sourcing professionals in bringing principles of responsible sourcing into global strategies. We translate the inspirational language of the UN Sustainable Development Goals into actionable business goals and standard operating procedures.”
