The ECO-Buy member webinar featured two ECO-Buy members who are demonstrating leadership in engaging staff on sustainable procurement:

Both Aubrey and Harry highlighted the importance of:

  • Helping staff to understand what you are requesting e.g. how to track and report
  • Solid policy, strategy and action plans that relate to sustainable procurement objectives and targets
  • Embedding sustainable procurement into staff training and induction
  • Setting up systems and processes to track and report sustainable procurement
  • Starting with the low hanging fruit and gaining momentum
