Recently, Chemours’ Chief Procurement Officer, Michelle Moore, joined procurement and sustainability leaders from Henkel, Mars Wrigley, and the University at California – Berkley, for a discussion on how procurement and sustainability have a tremendous influence, through the supply chain, to drive maturity, capability, and impact at scale. The session, part of EcoVadis' Sustain 2022 conference, received terrific reviews and was attended by over 5,000 individuals across the globe. If you missed the session, here's a teaser of some of the advice Michelle shared with conference attendees.
What advice would you give to somebody who wants to challenge their organization to do more to drive sustainability initiatives?
"First off, you need to make sustainability a priority in your business and with your teams. It needs to be part and parcel of your company vision and strategy, and at Chemours, it is. Sustainability must be a business priority. Call it out in lights. Secondly, use the power of collaboration to increase the chances of making a larger impact. We certainly can't do this alone. The more we're connected to industry peers, customers, and supplier partners, the more confident I feel that our entire value chain is invested in setting aggressive goals and doing what it takes to achieve them."
