CSL/SAI Platform Sustainability Master Class

Embedding sustainable sourcing strategies in companies

  Sustainable sourcing strategies 2013


"Ensuring long-term supply of raw materials is a key strategic issue for companies in agricultural commodity value chains. If we can't source, we can't sell - it doesn't matter how good our branding, how talented our workforce, or how big and powerful the company. Sustainable agriculture is essential for ensuring long-term sustainability of our business."
(Quote from a director of manufacturing and supply chain in a global food & beverage company)  

Have you ever...  

  • wondered about what sustainable sourcing really means and how it can be relevant to your business function and unit?
  • felt that managers in your company misunderstand or are even unaware of the business risks of sourcing from unsustainable agriculture?
  • thought that the business opportunities of sustainable sourcing are not fully exploited in your company?
  • wished that you had the language, tools and know-how to strategically embed sustainable sourcing more fully in your organization?  

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this two-day sustainable sourcing master class developed by IMD's CSL Learning Platform and the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform, is for you. It will focus on providing answers while allowing you to learn from others.
