Join SPLC Today!

SPLC NavigatorSM
Leverage the all-in-one SPLC NavigatorSM  platform to understand what sustainable procurement excellence looks like and how your organization is performing to it in comparison to your peers.  Get targeted resources and tools to create a roadmap towards impact and monitor their annual progress over time.  SPLC members enjoy free access to the platform, targeted tools, and ongoing support!

Strategic Program Development Coaching
SPLC coaching is aligned with our most fundamental principle – that the benefits of sustainable procurement depend on taking a strategic and programmatic approach, rather than opportunistic steps unrelated to a central set of commitments. We work with members develop new or enhance existing sustainable purchasing programs to move beyond contract-by-contract approaches, take a strategic view, and address connected issues across a procurement portfolio. SPLC Strategic Program Development Coaching engagements result in the creation of focused, strategic, and impactful programs aligned with overarching organizational priorities, to ensure success.

Peer Learning Circles
Peer Learning Circles (PLCs) are sector-based small collaborative groups that meet virtually each month to support and learn from one another while addressing common challenges.

Learning Hub
The SPLC Learning Hub offers concise, self-paced sustainable procurement courses through our virtual training platform, covering various program, issue, and category-level topics. SPLC members receive five accounts and discounted additional seats.
