Webinar on How to successfully implement a sustainable procurement programme? Lessons learned from 6 programmes around the world
In the past 10 years, sustainable procurement programmes and networks have flourished across the globe as they respond to a growing need of sustainability and procurement professionals, especially in public organisations: what are the great ideas out there? What are others doing? What do best practices look like? And, most of all, how can we work together and collaborate to achieve our sustainable procurement objectives? Sustainable Choice commissioned Planet Procurement to benchmark 6 successful sustainable procurement programmes in order to identify best practices and lessons learned: 1. Sustainable choice – Local Government NSW; 2. 3AR - Association Aquitaine des Achats Publics Responsables, based in France; 3.

Share lessons learned of the 6 programmes that were part of the benchmarking study; 2. Build knowledge around successful sustainable procurement programmes; 3. Create connections between sustainable procurement programme managers.
