Background

The Sustainable Procurement Index for Health (SPIH) is a globally established, recognized, and adaptable measurement tool for policymakers, manufacturers, suppliers, procurers, and health care facilities end users. It is designed to provide an incentive for entities to improve their environmental and social sustainability record.

The aim of the Index is to facilitate sustainable procurement in the health sector by supporting the decision making of buyers and certainty for suppliers, to provide a robust and transparent method that communicates supply chain performance and to provide clear pathways for stakeholders to improve their performance.

Objective

This virtual session will provide you with an overview of the Sustainable Procurement Index for Health (SPIH). Details will be provided on how the SPIH is structured, an overview of the key themes and questions, and the scoring system. Typical use cases for the SPIH will be set out, and feedback from recent piloting and testing sessions will be shared. Finally, you will have the opportunity to ask the panel any questions about the SPIH and how it might be deployed in your organisation.
