Organisations spend 50-80% of their revenues with their supply chains, meaning procurement is vital in the sustainability strategy and achieving economic, environment and social goals. ISO 20400:  Sustainable Procurement – Guidance, to be published in March 2017 ,  provides a global “how to” guide for sustainable procurement (‘SP’).

Join like-minded Procurement and Sustainability Professionals from the public and private sectors for a highly interactive one-day workshop (15 participants maximum), and gain practical tools to drive effective change in your organisation using ISO20400. A session in the afternoon will be dedicated to how to use the power of procurement to achieve your Low Carbon objectives.
