CPD 7 HoursHow can your supply chain help you achieve your sustainability goals? What do you need to do to engage suppliers effectively?

There can be no doubt that achieving sustainability in the supply chain continues to be a huge challenge across all industry sectors. Embedding and promoting ethical and environmentally sensitive procurement into the supply chain involves the complex management of processes, people and tools. Issues such as effective supplier engagement, carbon reduction, ethical sourcing and labour rights remain top of the sustainability professional's agenda.

Bringing together supply chain, procurement and sustainability professionals, the 3rd Annual Responsible Procurement & Supplier Engagement Conference will again work through the complex challenges of creating a truly sustainable and ethical supply chain.

Following another hugely successful event in 2013, Oil & Gas UK and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing (CIPS) are delighted to bring back this annual seminar to Aberdeen. The theme of this year's seminar is 'Dare to be Different'.

The oil and gas industry is a mature industry in the UK and has evolved in a unique way. However with rising costs and falling production, is that still a sustainable model?

The seminar will address the following questions:

Are we different? Do we need to be different? Should we remain different? Would there be benefit in being more 'mainstream' in our dealings?

Speakers from both within the oil and gas industry, and outwith, will deliver information in order to allow delegates to form their own opinions on the subject matter.

This unique full day seminar is intended as an interactive event, with delegates encouraged to participate and put forward their thoughts and insights.
