About the Guidance
The Guidance for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing is intended to help organizations improve the environmental, social, and economic performance within their supply chains—across the entirety of product and service life cycles—by implementing a strategic sustainable purchasing program. This Guidance is based on the Council’s Principles for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing v1.0, which define what organizations must do to demonstrate leadership in sustainable purchasing.
Organizations in a wide variety of sectors and regions can use this Guidance to understand the environmental, social, and economic life cycle impacts of their purchased goods and services, identify actions that best address these priorities, and benchmark progress toward goals. This Guidance is a voluntary program that will serve as the basis for a future rating system that rewards organizations that demonstrate leadership in sustainable purchasing.
