Sustainable Procurement: Purchasing the Future We Want


Discover Practical Steps to Help Your Organization Make More Sustainable Purchasing Decisions

Many organizations have woken up to the crises of climate change and biodiversity loss and are mobilizing to tackle these challenges through strategies to reduce their impact. However, these strategies often overlook a key function of a company’s business – Procurement.

Sustainable Purchasing is a great way to drive progress on your organization’s sustainability goals and reduce your environmental impact. Influencing this change can start with you.

A businesses’ supply chain can account for up to 4 X the amount of carbon emissions of a company’s regular operations. This means that by making sustainable changes to their supply chain, a company can experience significant environmental benefits.

Sustainable Procurement is also good for business, with some studies estimating that the average payback of sustainable procurement programs was 6 X in cost savings, 65% revenue growth, and 85% in risk reduction savings. We want to encourage environmental champions, no matter what their role is, to be the leader that brings the sustainability and procurement teams together.

In this webinar, Frances Edmonds, Head of Sustainable Impact at HP Canada and Amy Castator, Employee Engagement Specialist at WWF-Canada will discuss practical steps to help your organization make more sustainable purchasing decisions and break down the silos that exist within sustainability and purchasing. Join us to find our how you can influence change and build the case for sustainable procurement in your organization.

This session is scheduled for Tuesday, August 6th at 12PM (MT)
