Guidance for Sustainable Purchasing

Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) knows how to drive real progress in support of measurable impact. Our multi-stakeholder guidance is designed to help procurement and sustainability professionals develop a strategic sustainable procurement program that meaningfully addresses the environmental, social, and economic impacts of their spending by:

  • Identifying critical impacts of their organization’s goods and services purchasing
  • Guiding the selection and development of strategies, goals, and actions that address these impacts
  • Providing implementation support such as case studies, tools, and other resources to support progress toward goals
