Greenstone, a leading provider of sustainability, supply chain and ESG software solutions, has published ‘Sustainable Procurement – a guide to implementing sustainable purchasing practices’.
This guide is aiming to help procurement and sustainability professionals understand what sustainable procurement is, how their organisation is performing in this area and how they can begin to integrate sustainability into their procurement function.
We have seen the sustainability reporting landscape change immeasurably. This includes a shift from carbon emissions reporting to a more holistic approach to sustainability and the increasing requirement for businesses to create more sustainable supply chains.
Organisations are now operating in a world where their responsibility is expected to extend beyond the challenges of their own operations, and into far-reaching global supply chains. The result is a heightened risk, both financial and reputational, that can only be addressed through a transparent, inclusive and ultimately sustainable approach to the entire procurement process.
This Sustainable Procurement Guide includes:
- A short introduction to terms such as sustainability and procurement
- Key drivers for adopting more sustainable procurement practices
- The sustainable procurement journey – where are you and where do you want to be?
- Practical steps your company can take towards sustainable procurement
- What you should consider when purchasing supplier management software
- An introduction to Greenstone's SupplierPortal
Greenstone also held a 30-minute webinar on ‘How to begin your sustainable procurement journey’. Please visit our Past Webinars page to access the recording.
