After four years of development, the new ISO 20400 Sustainable Procurement Standard has been published this week.

We are also taking expressions of interest to stage similar briefings in other major centres.
Why should I attend?
Every organisation has environmental, social and economic impacts – and responsibilities. Procurement is absolutely central to organisations developing and strategizing around the new standard to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainability must be integrated into procurement policies and practises – from supply chains to risk management.
This is an opportunity for procurement to provide real value to the business through communication, collaboration and innovation.
With social, environmental and economic objectives increasingly finding their way on to the procurement agenda this briefing session will equip you to understand how the new standard can assist you to meet your CSR and environmental objectives – and raise the profile of the procurement function in your organisation.
