Sustainable procurement is very vital. Pressures and demands around sustainability and transparency are growing, and the supply chain is perhaps the largest risk, and also the biggest  - albeit unwieldy — lever of opportunity for becoming a more sustainable business. The question is, how do you get it going?


Launching or accelerating a sustainable supply chain/responsible purchasing initiative with a large company’s procurement team is a challenge for even the most visionary and passionate. Fortunately, there are already many companies forging a path towards this transformation, as well as a growing number of surveys, studies and supporting research.


This five-step guide summarizes the key tips including quantifying the business case, competitive elements, internal signals, stakeholder demands and internal momentum building. This guide is intended to inspire and provoke your thinking, so you can make the most convincing case possible for your boss, your team and your company to launch on the sustainable procurement journey.
