Sourcing sustainably – the first step in driving innovation

The global supply chain whether in consumers, industrial or special chemicals industries is coming under increasing pressure from both clients and consumers.  The supply chain begins with sourcing and procurement of raw materials that will in turn lead to sustainability.

In this challenging, competitive economy, the case for sustainability in sourcing is stronger than ever. All business functions, including R&D and sourcing, must contribute to sustainability. Therefore, companies must create a comprehensive sustainability agenda in order to remain competitive and secure future business.

Hear from Christine SchneiderHenkel‘s Head of Global Sustainability in R&D of Laundry & Home Care, how she is sourcing raw materials sustainably whilst driving innovation across Henkel’s product portfolio. Highlights of her talk include:

  • Aligning the sourcing of raw materials to the sustainability roadmap

  • Working with governments in advancing global environmental protection and sustainable development
