Sourcing, Sustainability, & Survey Results: An interactive dive into sourcing today with industry experts

About this event

Material Exchange has just wrapped up our 2nd annual Digital Sourcing and Sustainability Survey, and the results are in! We've gathered lots of data around the status of sourcing today and where the biggest priorities are as we move into the future. Within this dynamic industry, it's important to check in regularly; our survey does just that and the results we've aggregated are fascinating. In our upcoming webinar, we'll welcome a panel of industry professionals to go through some of the results we collected and what they mean for the industry as a whole. Attendees will also have a chance to ask the panel their own questions around sustainable sourcing. Don't miss this important discussion!
