Every buyer is a sustainable buyer
In partnership with Hilton Worldwide, the Center for Sustainable Procurement was established in 2012 as a go-to place for procurement professionals to enhance their buying decisions by incorporating sustainability criteria into the procurement process.
Despite the range of activities that companies have undertaken to improve supply chain sustainability, their focus often remains on mitigating supply chain costs and risks. By adopting proactive sustainable procurement practices, companies can create new opportunities and business benefits.
The mission of the Procurement Leadership Group is to bring together procurement professionals— those responsible for the acquisition of direct and indirect goods and services from outside sources—from across regions, industries, and sectors to create business value through 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.
