SPLC Navigator

We are excited to announce the launch of the SPLC NAVIGATORTM Platform!

SPLC NAVIGATORTM  empowers procurement teams to assess and improve the maturity and effectiveness of their sustainable procurement program, and roadmap their next steps to increase program impact.

The tool will scale sustainable procurement best practices by providing procurement teams with a comprehensive pulse check and diagnosis of their current sustainability initiatives, whatever stage they are at. The assessment process enables procurement professionals to benchmark against their peers, understand their strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement, and set a path forward to a robust, strategic sustainable procurement program.

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.  

Navigator’s questions and criteria address procurement programs on their effectiveness in obtaining the most demonstrably sustainable goods and services, from the most demonstrably sustainable suppliers, in alignment with the purchasing organization’s strategic sustainability goals - in a manner that has meaningful impact on supplier performance, the sustainability performance of goods and services, and drives market transformation.

SPLC members will access Navigator first (Q4 2023) and be able to leverage the platform for ongoing program assessment and annual performance review against a growing array of benchmarks (sectoral, spend, geography, industry, size). As always, SPLC will offer members targeted tools and support to strengthen their programs  - honing in on areas for improvement through the results of the assessment process.  Non-Members will be welcome to access the platform shortly thereafter.

  • Educate your organization on prioritized best practices in sustainable procurement
  • Confidentially identify where you are in sustainable procurement maturity and how you compare to others
  • Establish a baseline from which your SP progress can be measured on an annual basis
  • Focus in and be supported on areas where your program needs additional attention to become more effective
