The Power of Sustainable Procurement
Unless you are a sustainability expert, you may not have a solid understanding of the definition of sustainability and what it means to practice sustainability through procurement. Or, you may be looking for easy ways to explain these concepts to others. Either way, this Workshop Seres will help by explaining sustainability in an easy to understand framework, describing the potential benefits of sustainable procurement, and highlighting the many ways you are likely already engaging in sustainable procurement.
Building on this shared understanding, participants will be invited to explore life cycle thinking, ways to approach sustainable procurement with a multi-issue lens, and the many opportunities to incorporate sustainability considerations throughout all aspects of purchasing, from pre-competitive market engagements, bidding, contracting, catalog management, reporting, supplier relationship management, and more.
