Are you getting questions about what’s the natural starting point for developing a sustainable procurement program? Have you wondered what it would take to get more impact out of your existing efforts? You’ve got a Policy; how come you’re not getting more results?
Catastrophic climatic events over the last few years have proven that we need to take immediate action to address our climate crisis for benefit of our plant, economy, and population. Sustainable Procurement, Sustainable Development Goal #12, is a powerful tool to address ongoing ethical, environmental, social, and Indigenous issues in our supply chains. Organizations can have a meaningful impact on minimizing sustainability risks and creating opportunities, but sustainable procurement must be approached as a fulsome program rather than just another policy. Throughout this year, Reeve will be releasing blogs as part of our Best Practice Framework Blog Series. Next month, we will be diving into one of the first essential program elements, Strategy and Action Plan. Check back to learn more about how this element can provide a common vision amongst staff and stakeholders.
