Measuring Supplier Sustainability

July 8, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


Sustainability is a broad area that encompasses environmental, social and economic factors. Things like the use of 100 percent post-consumer waste (PCW) paper, green cleaning products, and energy efficient equipment have become widely accepted in the past 20 years. Countless public procurement offices have implemented sustainable procurement policies. More recently, the use of diverse suppliers at both the prime and sub-contract level are being measured. This provides an opportunity for minority-owned, women-owned, and emerging small businesses to compete in the public procurement process. Leading agencies from Oregon to Virginia are actively promoting the use of small businesses and measuring how well they are doing.
