Customized Sustainable Procurement -Non Certified

Sustainable Procurement is the adoption and integration of sustainability principles into your procurement processes and decisions while also ensuring, they meet the requirements of your company and its stakeholders.

Sustainable Procurement integrates requirements, specifications and criteria that are compatible with the protection of the environment and the society. It is not simply about not using child labor or illegal chemicals that can damage the environment and peoples’ health.

Commitment in sustainable procurement ensures values which are core to the business are integrated through a company’s supply chain into the life cycle of the company’s products and services. Best practice would be to future proof your company’s sustainable procurement and investments with sustainable policies in order to increase the viability for the long term.

Integrating Sustainability into the Procurement Process:

Sustainable procurement conceptually comprises three dimensions, sometimes referred to as the triple bottom line: social, environmental and economic sustainability. Implementing sustainable procurement involves balancing the different and sometimes competing priorities that occur across these three dimensions.Thus, during a procurement, certain aspects of sustainability may be prioritized over others, depending on the inherent nature of the goods/services, relevant sustainability impacts and supply market conditions.
