SPLC NavigatorSM is an all-in-one digital platform providing sustainable procurement measurement, benchmarking, targeted actions and supporting resources to drive program maturity towards positive impact. SPLC NavigatorSM equips procurement and sustainability teams with what they need to build a sustainable procurement roadmap informed by multi-stakeholder experts and supported by SPLC's resources. Navigator draws on the SPLC’s decade of learning, testing, and improving sustainable procurement best practices in collaboration with hundreds of procurement and sustainability leaders – every element has been tested, piloted, refined and strengthened over that decade of work under the oversight of SPLC's SP Assessment Working Group. The system evaluates procurement efforts based on our core understanding of the necessity of building a strategic program approach for meaningful impact.

Join us for this informational session to learn more about the Navigator platform and how you can use it to empower your procurement team to assess and improve the maturity and effectiveness of your organization's sustainable procurement program, and roadmap next steps to increase program impact.

SPLC members now have free access to Navigator and the 2024 SP Assessment in the SPLC Member Community, allowing them to leverage the platform for their annual SP performance reporting against sectoral, spend, geography, industry, and other benchmarks - and further supported by action plan recommendations for the coming year.  Non-member access will become available shortly for a fee.  The 2024 SP Assessment reporting window will then close on July 17th, followed by the 2024 Sustainable Procurement Report.
