Who Attends

Network with Peers, Suppliers, Customers, Policymakers, NGOs, and more!

One of the strengths of SPLC Summits is the cross-pollination of ideas between professionals working on sustainable purchasing in a variety of sectors and regions. Attendees at last year’s Summit raved about the fruitful conversations they had when collaborating across these differences:

Karen Cook, County of Alameda
“The Summit is a great event to stretch your professional knowledge, build networks for collaboration, and reinvigorate your passion for the work. This was my fifth summit, and I continue to be impressed by the quality of the people and the program.”

Judy Panayos, Sodexo
“The Summit is truly an amazing way to connect with peers, learn from them and go back to work energized to continue the mission to make our sourcing dollars have a positive impact on the world.”

Billy Linstead Goldsmith, Fair Trade USA
“There is not another space in the sustainable purchasing space quite like the SPLC Summit. There are a lot of gatherings focused on sustainability, a lot on purchasing/procurement, and a lot on supply chains, but not a lot that brings all of those together. “
