Victorian Local Government Metro March Network Meeting

Our first Network Meeting with Victorian Metro Local Councils for 2014 was full of shared insights and provocative questions. Our General Manager Cameron Neil facilitated a discussion on how reporting on sustainable procurement can help an organisation track and meet its goals. We also explored how sustainable procurement reporting allows us to see beyond price to long-term value.

We heard from Maree Grenell from the City of Melbourne on how sustainable procurement fits perfectly within their vision of a bold, inspirational and sustainable city, and how important it is for them to ‘walk the talk’ when making purchasing decisions, whether for office supplies or multi-million dollar infrastructure investments.
