BS8903:2010 Principles and Framework for Procuring Sustainably is widely regarded as the best practice standard for implementing sustainable procurement in an organisation. It provides high-level guidance that is applicable to any size and type of organisation on how sustainable procurement principles and practices can be embedded across the organisation and its supply chain.
The standard gives practical information that supports its implementation, including the definition and key aims of sustainable procurement, its business drivers, establishing a policy, embedding sustainability in the procurement process, and the enablers that ensure long term success.
