Supplier Day Success!

October 2023 saw Apleona UK host our Supplier Day attended by 37 supply chain partners.

This year’s central focus was on sustainability, carbon reporting and innovation. Through presentations and workshops we relayed key messages, shared best practice and explored areas of future collaboration.

Katerina continued to share some insights regarding modern slavery and how many businesses are not aware that this may be taking place within their operations and supply chains.

Sanil Singh, Head of Procurement gave an update on how Apleona has been working with supplier Ogilvie, the UK’s leading independent leasing company. Ogilvie have been supporting us with electrifying our fleet and Sanil shared some encouraging statistics.

The first of two workshops was based around these topics. Participants were asked to discuss and share what their company was doing in regard to sustainability and the SDG’s, if they knew about the risks of modern slavery and also if they needed help or support from Apleona on any of this. Katerina comments: “It was incredibly positive to see how keen everyone was to share opportunities and also challenges they were facing.”

Sanil comments on the day: “The day was a huge success and the feedback has been excellent. The core of any good business is good supply chain and without this we are nothing. I want to continue to build these relationships with our suppliers. We are already planning the next event!”
