Every buyer is a sustainable buyer
Established in 2012, the Center for Sustainable Procurement (CSP) conducts research and works with companies to develop resources, tools, methods, and processes to integrate sustainability into the procurement process.
The CSP aims to help procurement professionals make informed purchasing decisions based on the best available sustainability data and information.
Our sustainability-enhanced procurement framework aims to incorporate sustainability criteria across the seven-step procurement framework.
The CSP framework provides an overview of how sustainability can be enhanced throughout the procurement process. From integrating sustainability opportunities right at the start, to integrating sustainability into the sourcing strategy, to managing supplier performance on sustainability criteria, there are many opportunities along the way to consider how sustainability can enhance procurement decisions.
