Leaders Debate – Engaging the Supply Chain

The successful delivery of £billions worth of infrastructure investment is dependent upon an innovative and well-informed supply chain, which works in tandem with key rail industry stakeholders.

During this conversation, we look at the changing face of procurement as we transition towards Great British Railways and the impacts this will have across the whole industry. In a sector striving to eliminate carbon, create circular economies, protecting our natural environment and biodiversity whilst demonstrating social values, this transition must incorporate these factors whilst not forgetting passenger needs.
