New Climate-Friendly Purchasing Resource!

Reducing/eliminating the use of hydrofluorocarbons has been identified as one of the top strategies for climate action. To support purchasers in acting on this opportunity, we are excited to share the new Procurement Recommendations for Climate Friendly Refrigerants.

Why our members join

  • “The first thing to ask for is a membership in the SPLC. For me, it’s been so important because as a responsible purchasing subject matter expert, many times you are alone and that is typical. Having an organization that helps you learn and share best practices, an organization where you bring all that knowledge together and are able to share it, is huge.”


    Sr. Director, Sustainability in Supply Management | Sodexo

  • “The SPLC is always my first source for information when researching sustainability impacts for a new bid I’m working on, looking for best practice examples for a new program, or wondering what innovative companies/organizations are doing in the field.”


    Sustainable Procurement Analyst | University of California, Santa Barbara

  • “SPLC keeps us up to date on the latest thinking in supply chain sustainability. We benefit from being part of a community where next practices are shared and challenging issues are discussed in a collaborative forum.”


    Former Director, Supplier Sustainability and Diversity | PG&E

  • “Make sure you’re involved in forums like SPLC or others. Get involved in the different networks that advance supplier sustainability because then you meet like-minded, professional, exciting people who will help you move your program forward.”


    Global Procurement Sustainability Lead | Accenture

  • “SPLC’s Guidance has allowed us to apply an unprecedented strategic approach to our sustainable procurement efforts, and brought more attention and excitement to our program than I have seen in years.”


    Sustainability Analyst | City of Santa Monica

  • “We prefer to embrace best practices in the marketplace rather than proprietary expressions of those best practices. The SPLC has helped to direct our resources towards those practices that can efficiently scale to maximize our return on investment.”


    Manager of Responsible Sourcing Initiatives | Microsoft

  • “SPLC is invaluable to me and the City’s sustainable procurement program for its technical resources and the incredible networking and collective problem solving that occurs within the SPLC community.” 


    Sustainable Procurement Program Coordinator | City of Portland

A Message from the CEO:

Since our inception at Sustainable Purchasing, we have been committed to moving forward to identify solutions to problems through the planet. We join with our colleagues, partners and friends of all backgrounds, and the groundswell of people in countries throughout the world who are committed to forward-thinking and creative solutions to combatting racism and promoting inclusion, acceptance, dignity, and justice. The heart of Sustainable Purchasing is building and celebrating communities. We hope this new community that is forming changes the world.”
