Overview

This webinar will explain foundational aspects of a sustainable purchasing program, viewed through the lens of the procurement professional. Our “Procurement First” philosophy offers solutions that help an organization balance primary procurement needs while integrating sustainable considerations into the procurement process. The 90 minute session will be structured around three modules including:
 
1.  Organizational considerations and buy-in
2.  Commodity prioritization and specification development
3.  Embedding sustainability into the procurement process
 
This session is appropriate for members of the procurement team who want to start or grow their sustainable purchasing program as well as sustainability staff looking to guide and influence procurement colleagues towards a more sustainable future.  Help harness the power of the purchaser and help grow the sustainable economy.
