Guidance for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing v2.0
Guidance for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing is a comprehensive handbook for organizations seeking to exercise leadership in sustainable purchasing. It supports organizations working to develop or grow their purchasing efforts into a comprehensive sustainable purchasing program that takes meaningful responsibility for all significant environmental, social, and economic consequences of its spending. Guidance is based on the SPLC’s Principles for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing, which defines what it means to be a responsible—principled—actor, as an organization and within the marketplace.
Guidance for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing – Executive Summaries share the key “take home” messages for specific categories of purchasing discussed in the larger publication.
