In the run-up to the Summit, SPLC is inviting Summit attendees to participate in an exclusive test-drive of SPLC BENCHMARK℠, an online platform that enables diverse organizations to:

  1. assess their own sustainable purchasing activities against SPLC’s Principles for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing and the recommendations in SPLC’s Guidance for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing; and
  2. benchmark the maturity of their sustainable purchasing activities against those of other organizations.

During this plenary session, the aggregate results of the the attendees’ benchmark submissions will be presented, along with an overview of the system’s design, public release schedule, and future development plans.

The assessment framework developed for SPLC BENCHMARK℠ will inform the development of SPLC’s Rating System for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing.
