    CPOs responsible for spearheading industry change

    In the world of procurement, the role of a Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) extends far beyond managing transactions. It's about taking responsibility for driving change and progress within industries. This sentiment was echoed by Bertrand Conqueret, the CPO of Henkel, during a recent gathering of procurement leaders in Frankfurt.  

    At the heart of Conqueret's message was the need for CPOs to champion industry collaboration, particularly in advancing sustainability initiatives. He highlighted initiatives like Together for Sustainability (TfS) and the Sustainable Procurement Pledge, stressing the importance of collective action in driving real impact.

    The theme of his message carries significant relevance for those considering attending events, such as the Procurement Australia conference. These conferences serve as platforms for CPOs and procurement professionals to exchange ideas, strategies, and best practices.  

    The Procurement Australia conference, Collaborating for Purpose scheduled for August 16th 2024, promises to be an enriching experience for attendees. With a focus on sustainability, ethical procurement, and transforming practices, it offers a unique opportunity for professionals to engage in meaningful discussions and networking.

    In the essence, the role of a CPO transcends traditional procurement functions. It's about embracing responsibility and driving positive change within industries. Events like the Procurement Australia conference provide the perfect forum for CPOs to connect, collaborate, and collectively shape the future of procurement.
