The Business Guide to Sustainable and Circular Procurement

edie has launched a new business guide exploring how firms can embed circular and sustainable approaches and targets into procurement functions and contracts.

With businesses battling the perfect storm of catastrophic climate change, mounting consumer pressure and the escalating cost of living crisis, efficient, joined-up procurement is a critical way of ensuring CSR principles are integrated into key business processes and decisions whilst increasing resilience and meeting the requirements of stakeholders.

So, what does best practice now look like in the context of sustainable procurement, and ā€“ crucially ā€“ how can businesses ramp up commitments to sustainable procurement in ways which drive circularity and reduce emissions across the value chain?

This edie business guide, sponsored by Reconomy, provides an end-to-end overview of sustainable procurement practices and processes for businesses. The guide will include a variety of best practice case studies and top tips for businesses when it comes to overcoming procurement challenges and seizing the sustainability opportunities with a specific focus on how procurement practices can help improve circular economy actions and strategies across the value chain and the lifecycle of the material/product.

Action inspires action. Stay ahead of the curve with sustainability and energy newsletters from edie
