Workshop B: How to develop and enforce ethical and sustainable procurement practices

The three underpinning pillars to sustainability are economic, environmental, and social, also referred to as profit, planet, and people. Developing and enforcing sustainable procurement practices takes these three critical elements and creates a procurement policy that shows your company knows its future impacts on society and considers them when they’re making purchasing decisions. 

At the end of this workshop, you will have:

  • The insight needed to determine your organisations top CSR priorities
  • Analysed the four foundational elements of sustainable procurement
  • Learned the five practical steps your organisation can take to make your procurement more sustainable
  • Gained an understanding of the importance of sustainable procurement
  • Developed a clear procurement roadmap that takes into consideration risk and reputation, cost reduction, revenue growth, and forward-thinking
