One of the high priority initiatives of many public entities is sustainability. Though it is not a new concept, there is an ever-increasing focus on public entities to ensure they are doing their part to make a difference in this area. Most procurement organizations have a generalized statement of policy or procedure that goes into their solicitations, but where do we go from there? Is there more we can do? The answer is "yes", there is. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination and creativity.

What You'll Learn

After completing this online training session, learners will be able to:
1. Use the insights to create or enhance their sustainable purchasing efforts.
2. Incorporate the building blocks of sustainable purchasing into their practices.
3. Identify options and opportunities within their processes to make a difference in this space and demonstrate the value they bring to the entity.
