Neil Bradford

JD Sports Fashion plc Group Sustainability and Procurement Director, having previously undertaken roles including Group Head of Procurement and Environment at JD Sports Fashion plc, and Procurement Director at Sainsbury’s Supermarkets limited. Over the past 3-4 years my role as Group Head of Procurement expanded to encompass global ESG strategy. I am a member of the inaugural JD Group ESG Committee, with responsibility for Sustainability strategy, encompassing Climate Change, Sustainable Sourcing and Circular Economy. My retail experience started at 14 years old, and continued up until, during, and after gaining my Economics degree. I am a firm believer that the study of behavioural traits (cross-referenced with continued interrogation of related data) of customers, colleagues and citizens is key to influencing and embedding long-term change for climate and commercial impacting habits alike.
