An advanced Sustainable Procurement course aimed at experienced or developing procurement and supply chain practitioners as well as some key stakeholders. The course covers all aspects of sustainability and Sustainable Procurement and provides practical resources to implement sustainable procurement within an organization.
This course enables and fully equips your practitioners to establish and implement Sustainable Procurement. It is designed so those attending can enhance and embed Sustainable Procurement approaches within existing procurement practices including Category Management, Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) and Supply Chain Management. The course provides a solid introduction to the world of sustainability, why we need it, the business case for it, and the frameworks organizations are adopting. It provides an in-depth exploration of Sustainable Procurement and what is necessary to make it happen within an organization. It explores in detail, how to assess sustainability in terms of what we buy, who we buy from and our supply chains, and how to develop and implement targeted improvement initiatives across these areas.
The course also explores some key tools to develop a procurement-led approach in an organization to drive in sustainability, such as Sustainability Value Engineering and Hot Spot Analysis. Finally, the course explores how to make Sustainable Procurement part of what we do and how to ensure projects are well supported.
