The Power of Procurement: Engaging and Activating Critical Allies for Sustainability

Professionally managed procurement offers immense leverage to make change at the scale needed to improve many environmental, social, and economic outcomes. Yet all too often sustainability leads pursue standalone projects, and procurement professionals pursue cost savings, while the huge opportunity that procurement offers to drive change into core business operations goes unaddressed. Often the gaps in language and culture between the different disciplines simply get in the way of effective collaboration.

This session is designed to change this dynamic. Through presentation, case study material, and individualized exercises, participants will develop skills to engage, align, and activate sustainability champions within procurement, and ultimately capture the sustainability potential of the dollars your organization spends.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand why procurement is such a powerful tool for addressing sustainability
  • Become conversant with barriers to procurement’s full engagement with sustainability
  • Learn about successful approaches to engaging procurement-related stakeholders in relevant sustainability efforts
  • Begin to identify key stakeholders, relevant engagement strategies, and upcoming opportunities to take action in collaboration with procurement leaders in your own organization

This workshop series is open to 1 nominee from each member organisaton. For more information on The Faculty Roundtable, please contact [email protected]
