There is a growing need for businesses to take a more active role in addressing societal issues. Stakeholders expect those they do business with to make progress with respect to social impact, sustainability, carbon footprint, etc. These expectations extend beyond your own organizations to include their vendors and suppliers.
Our Working Group Social Impact and Sustainability is co-chaired by Pamela Cone, Founder and CEO of Amity Advisory, a social impact and sustainability consultancy to the legal industry, and Orazio Difruscolo, Head Claims Legal Sourcing at Swiss Re.
Our Focus as an Industry Working Group
What is the role of the legal industry in addressing these issues? How does an organization's behavior influence buying decisions? What steps should procurement take to help influence the behavior of its vendors and suppliers, including law firms?
