Champion Sustainable Purchasing

*In light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus outbreak, please practice social distancing and follow government guidelines for gatherings and activities. Your health and your safety are our top priorities.*

When your organization purchases a product or service, it usually considers things like cost, quality, and technical capabilities. Buying responsibly adds another important layer of considerations to the table: considerations for the well-being of people and the planet. You might be surprised by the ways you can influence your organization’s buying habits. Sometimes, all it takes is asking the right questions to the right people. You can be the one to start that conversation.

Champion sustainable purchasing at work by breaking down communication barriers between your purchasing and sustainability teams. Through our five-step guide created in collaboration with HP Canada, we’ll help you along the path toward having effective inter-departmental conversations that can lead to more sustainable purchasing decisions.
