Master Class on Sustainable Sourcing

Since 2009, SAI Platform has been organising a Master Class on ‘Building Sustainable Value Chains’ to provide members and sustainability professionals with the opportunity to learn, gain practical advice on sustainable sourcing and address the day-to-day issues they face.

Over the last two years, the Master Class has been organised in partnership with BSL – Business School Lausanne. Previous editions of the Master Class were run in conjunction with IMD Business School.

What is the Master Class About?

Our Master Class is an exciting and interactive training and learning opportunity to help participants develop realistic and practical implementation approaches to meet companies’ sustainable sourcing targets for agricultural raw materials.

The course programme is based on the framework and steps of the “Practitioner’s Guide to Sustainable Sourcing of Agricultural Raw Materials”, which we developed together with IMD Business School, the International Trade Centre (ITC), the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), and with support from the Sustainable Food Lab (SFL), Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) and Sedex.

Who can participate?

The Master Class takes place once every year and is open to everyone interested in sustainable sourcing of agricultural raw materials, including sustainability, procurement, strategy, brand and marketing executives or professionals in organisations and companies working in the food value chain.

SAI Platform members benefit from a discount.
