The Faculty Sustainable Purchasing Masterclass | Member-Only Event
Sustainable Purchasing 101
Few of us are true sustainability experts and thus don’t have a solid understanding of the definition of sustainability and what it means to practice sustainability through procurement. Nor do we feel confident explaining the cause to others. Either way, this 90-minute session will explain 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, you’ll explore life cycle thinking and ways to approach sustainable procurement through a multi-issue lens. Investigate the many opportunities to incorporate sustainability considerations throughout all aspects of purchasing, from pre-competitive market engagements, bidding, contracting, catalogue management, reporting, supplier relationship management, and more. In a Faculty first, we are excited to collaborate with the SPLC (Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council) for this dynamic and informative session.
