KPN’s Journey to becoming the greenest telco in the world: The role of procurement in KPN’s strategy

March 27, 2024

Becoming one of the greenest telecom companies globally is no simple feat. Nonetheless, Dutch-born KPN accomplished it. In 2011, KPN has transitioned to green electricity, achieved climate neutrality in 2015, and aims for circularity by 2025. Such an accomplishment can only be achieved with the right people, one of them being Jeroen Wegkamp, CPO at KPN. Jeroen spearheads the strategy to reach goals such as Net Zero within the whole supply chain by 2040 while maintaining a seamless connection to procurement. Within the strategy, he touches upon several challenges such as partnership, digitalisation and securing the right talent.

During this Vision Dinner, Jeroen will take you through KPN’s journey. He will share lessons learned as well as give a glimpse of what KPN’s future holds. Additionally, he will challenge you with questions about how the word partnership can be given more meaning. Afterwards there is the opportunity for networking and you will be able to experience the latest BMW products.

  • Small-scale peer session
  • Open dialogue by means of the Chatham House Rule
