Sustainable Procurement thought-leaders will meet for global forum in Sydney

0

What you buy, how you buy it and who you buy it from is changing. Environmental and social concerns, such as modern slavery, carbon footprint, local sourcing or supplier diversity are now firmly on the business agenda. A global economy, multinational organisations & international supply chains, highlight the need for one credible guidance standard that can be implemented anywhere in the world.

Such important issues will be addressed through a series of short, powerful presentations from the world’s foremost procurement practitioners at the Global Forum on Sustainable Procurement in Sydney on 2 May 2016. The forum will cover sustainability issues and best practices across the government, retail, construction, infrastructure, FM and energy sectors.
