Hi all,

Andrew Hobday’s interview sounds to me very accurate and to the point ; when listening to the answers to Steve Crom questions, it recalls my passionating experience at Total as Group purchasing / supply chain coordinator with respect to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Sustainability issues obviously matter when it comes to managing company environmental footprint, social attractiveness / leadership and governance (ESG) search for excellence.

Where CSR / ESG fundamental principles are concerned, it’s also very true, as very well explained by Andrew, that internal & external CSR achievements should be consistent ; in particular, the quality / rating of any company’s supply chain CRS policy should match (be reflected into) such company global CSR reputation. Thanks for this rich interview !
