Course Overview

In the wake of several climate change and environmental sustainability issues, sustainable development has often emerged as a top national and international agenda item.

Why is sustainability crucial to the future success of organisations in NZ?

Sustainability ensures that our actions today do not impact adversely on the quality of life in the future whilst making more efficient use of resources and optimising ROI.

Sustainable procurement offers manufacturers, suppliers and contractors the opportunity to develop environmentally sustainable and cost effective goods and services. Therefore, sustainable procurement plays a pivotal a role in delivering and bringing together economic, social and environmental policy objectives - achieving value for money for the taxpayer whilst delivering goods and services people need and expect.

However, research has found that while organisations are moving towards sustainable procurement practices, overall, the development and implementation of sustainable procurement is mostly hampered by a lack of knowledge and understanding of the importance and impact of sustainable business practices.

To help procurement professionals widen their insights and achieve their sustainable procurement objectives, Sustainable Procurement Strategies has been designed to be a practical course weaved with case studies and interactive discussions designed to reinforce your learning experience. Through the course you will learn to identify and close the gap between commitment and operational practices and how to integrate sustainability into your organisation's entire procurement policy and practice.
