Drivers to sustainable procurement

The main drivers towards achieving sustainable procurement are:

  • Effective organization wide policies to ensure that everyone is aware of the strategy
  • Training and guidance to help all of those involved in procurement to understand sustainable procurement and whole life costing;
  • Regular audits and monitoring to assess where your organization is in the context of sustainable procurement and where you could make further progress in this area
  • Commitment to sustainable development as an organizational policy
  • supporting and educating suppliers/creating markets
  • linking up with other organizations to learn from their experience
  • pooling procurement by forming procurement consortium where relevant
