Becoming a leader in sustainable procurement requires a clear and compelling vision of how sustainability can be integrated throughout your organization. Visionary CEOs and executives recognize that sustainability is a compelling topic for consumers, legislators and investors, who are increasingly looking for businesses to serve an environmental and social purpose.
Our work with leading sustainable procurement organizations has shown that the articulated vision regarding sustainable procurement often has four key features in common:
- They are formalized, memorable and inspiring;
- They move beyond the procurement team and is integrated throughout the organization;
- They are firmly linked to the overall corporate sustainability vision;
- They are linked to the organization's value proposition and aim at driving global sustainability impact.
