HubSpot Video

In TRANSFORM—a thought-provoking new podcast series from Art of Procurement in partnership with Globality—we spotlight the agenda-setting procurement leaders and companies that are changing the game and redefining the Future of Procurement.

Leading procurement organizations are constantly reimagining their processes and operating models, but in today’s unpredictable and fast-changing world they are under more pressure than ever to deliver a high-level roadmap for building the procurement function of tomorrow, today.

In this episode, host Philip Ideson talks with Vanessa Pepperell, Global COO and Strategy Procurement Vice President of Aquanima, the procurement company of Santander. With two decades of expertise, Aquanima now works with Santander and external clients.

In this interview, Vanessa explains how Aquanima is driving digital transformation in services procurement by discussing:

  • how investing in ESG can help companies build brand value and minimize risk;
  • why strategic partnerships require transparency and investment from the buy-side organization;
  • what change management is required as companies build a sustainable supply chain over time.

Most companies are starting to realize that the more sustainable they become, the easier it is to go to market and have a higher value. And that is the aim at the end of the day, to last longer and add more value to the market.”
