Sustainable Procurement

The Key to your Global Fleet Strategy in 2023

In 2023 and beyond, Sustainable Procurement is going to be key to revitalize your global fleet strategy. Come to the 2023 Global Fleet Conference (15-17 May in Cascais, Portugal) to learn why, how and what.

Why should you learn about Sustainable Procurement at the 2023 Global Fleet Conference?

Market conditions have been extra challenging these past few years, so multinationals and their fleet managers have been forced to focus on business continuity, and to deliver quick wins in cost efficiency.

Many of those challenges will continue in 2023. That is exactly why it’s time to change direction – moving from quick fixes to a fundamental rethink of your global fleet strategy.

You need a global fleet strategy that is fit for these times: contributing to corporate ESG targets, responding to the changed needs of drivers and other employees, and increasing your company’s value and attractiveness.

The main principle behind that rethink? Sustainable Procurement. That is: cultivating sustainable partnerships, that deliver sustainable outcomes in fleet and mobility.

How will you learn about Sustainable Procurement at the 2023 Global Fleet Conference?

Once again, we are assembling a stellar cast of expert speakers:

  • Award-winning fleet managers
  • Regional and global fleet executives
  • All with market-leading experience in leasing and fleet management, electrification and energy management, connectivity and digitization.

These speakers will share with you how you can translate Sustainable Procurement into success for your global fleet management, with tangible benefits for your organization and its employees.
