This advanced-level course is aimed at experienced procurement practitioners who need to implement Sustainable Procurement
Sustainability is fast becoming the single biggest focus area for organizations, whether driven by choice, customer expectations, or by emerging legislation. Many are also realizing the opportunity sustainability offers as a source of new competitive advantage. Achieving sustainability is a challenge for any organization and the supply base is the most challenging area of all. With typically around 60% of all sustainability initiatives involving the supply base in some way, understanding the areas we need to address and driving in change for what we buy, who we buy from, and back up our supply chains, requires a fresh approach to procurement and supply chain management.
Positive Purchasing Sustainable Procurement is a unique approach. Built upon the foundations of our proven 5i® strategic Category Management and 5A/5S Orchestra of SRM® methodologies, it enables organizations to make meaningful changes in terms of supply-side sustainability. We combine our Sustainable Procurement process and toolkit with online or classroom training courses to equip your team with the resources and capability to determine the supply-side risks, impacts, and opportunities against overall corporate sustainability goals. We then help implement improvement programs that will realize these goals.
