Sustainable Procurement

This month, ASCI’s NSW Members will hone in on sustainable procurement and working towards an increased focus on the bottom line for businesses globally. Our moderator is MD Maruf Hossan Chowdhury, Lecturer (Operations & Supply Chain Management) from our Corporate Member, UTS Business School.

The procurement space is vulnerable for disruption. The discussion will cover some modelling to assist with sustainable procurement, we’ll address the tougher regulations around modern slavery, and how this affects an increased focus on the bottom line for businesses globally.

MD Maruf Hossan Chowdhury will also present his work on procurement modelling.

Maruf Chowdhury has obtained his PhD degree from Curtin University, Australia. Prior to joining UTS as a lecturer, Dr Chowdhury held academic positions in the University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Australia and Chittagong University, Bangladesh.

He is also contributing as a reviewer to the top tier journals of Operations and Supply Chain Management. His research interest includes supply chain sustainability, resilience, agility, information integration in supply chain, service design, applied operations research, and system dynamic modelling.
