Sustainability is about making positive impacts on the economy and society. One way businesses can do this is in the way they source goods and services. These investments can make a big difference for local economies and present great potential to create inclusive economic growth.

In the next episode of Sustainability Leaders, Michael Torrance talks to Eric Smith, Vice-Chair, BMO Harris Bank, and Christine Canning, Managing Director of Supplier Relationship Management at BMO, about the importance and benefits of sourcing from minority-owned businesses. They’ll offer tips on how businesses can create a successful framework for sourcing from minority-owned firms, who should be at the table when you’re developing a strategy and how to measure success.
