On December 7, Everest Group hosted a webinar titled, "ESG in Services: What Sourcing Teams Must Know to Do More."

While environmental, social, and governance (ESG) objectives have been important to sourcing teams for years, most efforts have focused on the materials supply chain or smaller, less strategic suppliers. Savvy sourcing teams have realized that’s no longer enough and are focusing on ways to navigate their ESG objectives with large, strategic service providers.

In this webinar, our analysts shared current ESG trends in the global services industry and provide guidance on how to use your services spend to better reach your organization’s diversity and sustainability goals.
