A New Way to Benchmark your Sustainable Purchasing Program
November 7, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm ESTFree
The members of the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council have collaborated to produce a Benchmarking System for evaluating the maturity of Sustainable Purchasing Programs. The new tool is being used by organizations in a wide variety of sectors to understand where their program lies on a continuum that runs form “Initiating” to “Transformative Leadership.” In this interactive webinar, participants will get hands-on with the Benchmarking System after receiving an introduction and presentation of early benchmarking results from the system. The presenter will also show how this tool supports organizations working towards a good STARS rating. More information on the forthcoming SPLC Benchmarking System is available at https://www.sustainablepurchasing.org/benchmark/
