BSR's Center for Sustainable Procurement (CSP) will hold a half-day training on to help companies learn how sustainability can be incorporated into the existing procurement process, creating both business and sustainability value.

This training will guide buyers, procurement managers, and sustainability professionals through a tangible, step-by-step process to make their purchasing categories and decisions more sustainable. Using the CSP’s Sustainable Procurement Framework, we will train attendees on how to use the framework and specifically address how they can apply it to their particular procurement challenges. We will share tools and real-world company examples and case studies to show how sustainable procurement can be implemented.
