Torben Schiøler, CPO at Maersk Drilling

Torben Schiøler will share his thought and experiences on how ESG and spend analytics can go hand in hand.

Maersk Drilling supports global oil and gas production by providing high-efficiency drilling services to oil companies around the world. For that reason, Maersk Drilling is very much aware of their carbon footprint as part of their ESG program that needs to be more transparent than it is today.

Moreover, ESG had supported Maersk Drilling in their work of spend analytics where it has been difficult for them to control their supplier payments, and thus analyzing expenditure data. Transparency was limited and therefore they needed a new way, to gain more control and transparency, while at the same time eliminating many manual processes and simplifying operations. Transparency is a sense of trust in each other and that requires effective communication.

In this CPO meeting Torben will present his experiences with Spend Analytics, ESG and Transparency, and is looking forward to getting some professional feedback from his peers.

09.40 – 09.50: Sami Peltonen, Vice President, Product Management at Basware


Sami Peltonen will share his thoughts and experiences on Spend Analytics/transparency and initiate the group discussion with some stimulus questions.

09.50 – 10.20: Group discussion – virtual breakout groups:

Participants will be divided into virtual breakout groups. Each breakout group brings together peers to create an open environment for honest discussions and sharing real world experiences. There will be a group chair for each group managing the discussion based on the following questions:

  • How are you running spend analysis at the moment?
  • Do you have visibility to all of your spend or just parts of it?
  • What conclusions do you do, based on spend analysis, and how much you collaborate with business to understand where to focus from savings/value creation standpoint?
  • Do you measure savings and how you do it? How do you take into account the volume change, substituting products, currency exchange rates etc.?
  • Has Covid-19 changed how you manage your spend?


10.20 – 10.30: Sharing findings and wrap-up
