W5 Sustainable Procurement—Corporate & Government Policy & Practice
In this panel we will share some of the successful models of policies being implemented to advance sustainable procurement. An increasing number of government entities at the local, state and federal level are deepening commitments to sustainable procurement through the development of policies. Examples include executive orders, city ordinances, regional sustainable purchasing agreements, and the creation of new standards and certifications to better identify sustainable products and services.
This panel will discuss issues such as high road business, good workplaces, climate change, and safer, healthier supply chains that are being incorporated more and more into the practices and policies being adopted by corporations and governments. Understand more about the sustainability market and policy shifts that enable minority suppliers to compete and to meet the challenges of society, their communities and their business.
