Sustainability: Get a C-Suite View of How It Plays in Customer-Supplier Expectations at DCAT Week

Sustainability has become an all-important issue in bio/pharma companies’ selection and evaluation of their suppliers as companies seek to reduce their carbon footprint in line with international climate goals. But what are bio/pharma companies expecting from their suppliers, and how can suppliers meet those expectations? 

Lisa Martin,
Senior Vice President, Global Procurement, and Chief Procurement Officer, 

GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) Chief Procurement Officer (CPO), Lisa Martin, will provide a C-suite view of sustainability at the DCAT Week education program, Industry Radar 2023: Energy, Raw Materials & Sustainability. She will discuss GSK’s sustainable procurement program for suppliers and how it is working with suppliers to meet the company’s environmental targets in emissions, water usage, and waste reduction. The program will provide practical insights on how your company can meet its sustainability targets in its sourcing and supply practices, and for suppliers, the program provides a customer-centric view on what it takes to be a valued partner in sustainability.  

The program will also examine another hot-button issue in 2023: rising input costs by providing an energy and chemicals outlook to see the pressure points in raw materials costs and what can be expected in 2023 and the near term.  

The program will be held at the InterContinental Barclay Hotel, Grand Ballroom on Tuesday, March 21, 2023: 2:00 PM – 3:15 PM; Doors open at 1:30 PM for coffee & networking.
