As sustainable procurement practices gradually take hold in the public sector, the impact is rapidly being felt in the private sector supply chain. Most purchasing and procurement professionals know what sustainable procurement is, and understand why it’s important, but this conference is here to help you with the HOW.

Learn how to:

  • Implement and apply best-practice in sustainable procurement
  • Measure the sustainability of new and existing products and services
  • Compare sustainability choices - what all the different ‘badges’ and ‘standards’ mean
  • Use ‘whole life costing’ measurements
  • Use standards to simplify the process
  • Balance sustainability with cost and quality demands.

And crucially how to:

  • Demonstrate return on investment (ROI) and other benefits
