Networking, digitalization, end-to-end consideration: numerous developments present great challenges for procurement in its current structure. Many companies have recognized this, are questioning their organizational structure and want to make their procurement organization fit for the future. With the Value Added Network (VAN) amc presents a new, disruptive organizational concept for procurement. The fact that the VAN is coming is undisputed among experts.
Sustainability is THE imperative for future-oriented business. Procurement organizations that focus on values ensure the competitiveness of companies. But this requires clear structures.

200 participants discussed the topic of sustainability in procurement at the 1st BME Sustainability Summit. In the accompanying workshop, the amc Group examined the maturity level of procurement with regard to sustainability. The balance: There is still a lot to do!
Compliance with ecological and social requirements has been part of the day-to-day business of procurement ever since the climate debate. Procurement has a great influence on the supply chain. Sustainability is increasingly becoming a fixed evaluation criterion for suppliers, as the biggest environmental problems arise in the global supply chains. To achieve this, sustainability must be firmly anchored in the corporate and procurement strategy.
